Winemaker's Notes:

The Hess Estate Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a new wine program from The Hess Collection Winery. Inspired by the maturation of excellent vineyard sources and winemaker's vineyard selections, the Hess Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is an expression of Napa Valley terroir. The fruit is chosen from vineyards in several districts in the Napa Valley including Dry Creek, Oakville, Mt. Veeder and with the 2001 vintage, the newest vineyard in Pope Valley.
My Notes:

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."
