Winemaker's Notes:

Winemaker David Guffy crafted the Hess Select Cabernet Sauvignon with notable richness, intensity and varietal character, showing jammy dark fruit aromas of Bing cherry with cedary barrel notes and a touch of spice. A rich, round entry with ripe plum and raspberry in the forefront and a rich mid-palate with soft tannins on the finish. The wine is complex, yet imminently drinkable.

Any dish incorporating sweet peppers, caramelized onions or roasted Portobello mushrooms, a hearty bacon burger with blue cheese, barbecued shrimp, mild blue cheeses and cheddar cheese.

Blend: 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petite Sirah, 4% Merlot, 2% Syrah, 1% Malbec

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."
