    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 1997 vintage of this wine was ranked #3 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 1995

    Complex and alluring flavors of wild mountain blackberry, black cherry, currant and sweet molasses, accented by underlying flavors of graphite and cedar box. Hints of vanilla and toast are imparted by the new French oak barrels. The addition of Mount Veeder Malbec - with its distinguishing characteristics of dark chocolate and boysenberry - adds a heightened intensity to the fruit and lends texture to this wine, while softening and balancing the tannins for a long elegant finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bordeaux-like in its aroma, structure, weight and range of flavors, this is tight, with cedary cigar box and tobacco scents. Dry and savory, with dried currant, mineral and gravel notes, ending with subtle flavor nuances. Drink now through 2022.

    Always an underestimated wine, this 2007 from Hess Collection is a beautiful Cabernet. It’s dry and balanced, and the blackberry and currant flavors have a pleasing earthiness. That old cliché, `food friendly,’ definitely applies. Drink it now and over the next six years.
