Winemaker's Notes:

The Hess Estate Cabernet Sauvignon delivers a mix of fresh raspberry and cherry aroma backed by cedar, pine, and earth. The palate shows fruit-forward richness and well integrated chewy tannins. This wine has a full body that is expected from Napa Cabernet Sauvignon with round, supple tannins for a graceful finish.

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."
