Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.6%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

The 1997 vintage of this wine was ranked #3 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 1995

Complex and alluring flavors of wild mountain blackberry, black cherry, currant and sweet molasses, accented by underlying flavors of graphite and cedar box. Hints of vanilla and toast are imparted by the new French oak barrels. The addition of Mount Veeder Malbec - with its distinguishing characteristics of dark chocolate and boysenberry - adds a heightened intensity to the fruit and lends texture to this wine, while softening and balancing the tannins for a long elegant finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Bordeaux-like in its aroma, structure, weight and range of flavors, this is tight, with cedary cigar box and tobacco scents. Dry and savory, with dried currant, mineral and gravel notes, ending with subtle flavor nuances. Drink now through 2022."
92 Points

"Always an underestimated wine, this 2007 from Hess Collection is a beautiful Cabernet. It’s dry and balanced, and the blackberry and currant flavors have a pleasing earthiness. That old cliché, `food friendly,’ definitely applies. Drink it now and over the next six years."

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
