Winemaker's Notes:

This 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon opens with bright fruity aromas of red cherry and spice that continues seamlessly on the palate from entry to finish. The wine's structure and ripe, round tannins on the finish complement its soft luscious mouthfeel.

The tannins are smooth and soft, making it perfect with full-flavored meats such as slow roasted pork. Grilled meats such as steaks, chops, and lamb loin complement this Cabernet Sauvignon's toasty component.

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."
