    Winemaker's Notes:

    Blend: 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 10% Malbec, 6% Syrah and 1% Cabernet Franc

    The wines of Hess Mount Veeder reflect Donald Hess' vision of mountain wines with winemaking and grape growing working hand in hand to extract the best expressions of mountain fruit. These wines display balance and elegance with ample strength and structure to age. Mount Veeder is the coolest, southernmost mountain district in Napa and has both a volcanic and geologically unique soil that only occurs in this mountain AVA. The unique attributes of the soils, exposures and altitude create wines that reveal the mountain's distinct personality.

    The 2004 Mount Veeder Cuvée has complex aromas of cassis, cedar, and mint. Black cherry on the palate is expressive of our mountain fruit, while finished tannins provide an underlying structure which will continue to evolve with proper cellaring. This wine complements an adventurous range of culinary tastes.

    Ineffably luscious and cool, this wine has mountain-grown fruit intensity without feeling pushed to extremes of ripeness or extract. It's gentle and delicious, offering earthy spice and a hint of anise to heighten the saturation of fruit."

    Featured this wine at a Holiday Party. This was clearly the hit of the night! Lots of character, bold but very drinkable. I wish I had bought another case!
