Hess Cabernet Sauvignon California 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Advocate #101 (Oct 1995) Robert Parker 85 points. The Hess Select 1993 Cabernet Sauvignon is also a noteworthy value, offering up plenty of fleshy cassis fruit in an uncomplicated, drinkable, supple style. It is a cleanly made, perfumed, mouthfilling wine for drinking over the next 4-6 years.

The Hess Collection was founded by Swiss entrepreneur Donald Hess, who first purchased vineyards on Mount Veeder in 1978. The winery is best known for its flagship Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay wines, and single vineyard designates from our estate vineyards in Napa Valley. A leader in sustainable and organic practices, The Hess Collection adheres to founder Donald Hess’ philosophy; “Nurture the land; return what you take.” Located in the historic stone winery originally constructed in 1903 by Colonel Theodore Gier, the winery first opened to the public in 1989. It since has earned international recognition for its wine, culinary and visitor programs, and provides free public access to Donald Hess’ extensive private Contemporary Art Museum. Read less

Wine Tasting NotesThe vintage displays dark color. Black cherry, chocolate and caramel aromas come first with subtle spice and barrel toast as secondary themes inviting your first sip. The palate reinforces cherry and currant and carries ample weight on the mid palate. The tannins are present but ripe and round and lead to a persistent finish. The tannins are smooth and soft, making it perfect to have with dinner tonight with full flavored meats such as slow roasted pork. Grilling meats such as steaks, chops, and lamb loin complement our Cabernet's toasty component.
