Winemaker Notes

The 2002 Hess Collection Mountain Cuvée is the premiere release of our proprietary blend of estate grown Bordeaux and Rhone varieties. This wine reflects the many different terroirs of our steep Mount Veeder slopes. After over a quarter of a century farming Mount Veeder we have discovered which varietals excel in each unique vineyard block with their varying altitudes, exposures, soil, and micro-climatic conditions. We were thus led to the Mountain Cuvée by listening to the mountain.

A Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah blend, the wine is both powerful, yet elegant. The lifted aroma profile of floral notes, red cherry, vanilla, spice and cedar is followed by a second layer of black licorice, wild berry, and pepper. These aromas follow through in the flavors of bright red fruit, spice and a fleshy round palate integrated with French oak and a satin finish. Enjoy this new release - a true expression of wine from mountain vineyards.

Blend: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Syrah, 14% Merlot, 6% Malbec, 4% Cabernet Franc

Hess
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."
