Hess Collection Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
This wine delivers the complexity, beauty, and structure we have come to expect from our mountain fruit. Cabernet Sauvignon lives at the heart of the wine with its presence revealed through aromas of wild mountain raspberry and cocoa. Elegant notes of violets signal the presence of Malbec, which are integrated to develop a softness on the palate. The 2018 vintage is perfectly structured and led by black fruits, with mouth-filling layers of cassis framed by vanilla notes. The nearly two-year wait in the most premium barrels once again delivers a well-rounded wine as elements of oak spice and creamy milk chocolate linger on the lengthy, pleasing finish.
Blend: 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot
