2016 The Hess Collection Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon
The estate grown Cabernet is the flagship of The Hess Collection – grown on the original vineyards first acquired by Donald Hess in the late 70s.The 2014 vintage is vibrant with big blackberry fruit notes and sweet pleasing tannins – a surprise coming from Mount Veeder. Tannins on Mount Veeder need the most attention to ensure the team crafts a wine that is approachable and round, and this vintage delivers on all fronts. There are mouth-filling notes of espresso and cassis that layer around a very precise black fruit core. This is a wine that can age, but won’t disappoint while it’s young.
Blend: 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Malbec, 3% Petit Verdot
