Winemaker's Notes:

This vintage displays notes of toffee, vanilla bean and hickory on the nose, which lead into black cherry, pomegranate and black licorice on the palate. Seamless tannins flow through the mid palate and then dovetail into a dark chocolate finish.

A complex and approachable wine that pairs with moist fish, grilled meats, caramelized onions and wild mushrooms. This wine will best be enjoyed from 2008-2012.

About The Hess Collection:

The Hess Collection was founded by Swiss entrepreneur Donald Hess, who first purchased vineyards on Mount Veeder in 1978 and began making wine under The Hess Collection label in 1983. In 1986, he began renovation of the historic winery, originally constructed in 1903 by Colonel Theodore Gier. The winery opened to the public in 1989. The Hess Collection has vineyards on Mount Veeder, along with their Napa Valley estate vineyards - Su'skol and Allomi in Napa Valley, and Shirtail Creek Vineyard in Monterey. Each of these vineyards is sustainably farmed in accordance with Donald's philosophy: "Nurture the land, return what you take."
