The wines of Hess Mount Veeder reflect Donald Hess' vision of mountain wines with
winemaking and grape growing working hand in hand to extract the best expressions
of mountain fruit. These wines display balance and elegance with ample strength and
structure to age. Mount Veeder is the coolest, southernmost mountain district in Napa
and has both a volcanic and geologically unique soil that only occurs in this mountain
AVA. The unique attributes of the soils, exposures and altitude create wines that reveal
the mountain's distinct personality.
The aroma expresses cassis, molasses, milk chocolate, black berry, and black cherry followed

Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...Read More About Cabernet Sauvignon
