In 1978, Donald Hess founded the Hess Collection Winery on the volcanic slopes of Mount Veeder, 2,000 feet above the Napa Valley and defined a whole new approach to winemaking. Along with its mountain vineyards, the winery has won acclaim for its other estate vineyards in the Northeast and Southern ends of the Napa Valley and has been recognised as a premium producer of Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. Currently, 85 of the estate's 310 sustainably-farmed acres of vineyards are organically farmed and they are now in process of converting the remainder of the estate to organic farming. Grapes : Cabernet Sauvignon 63%, Malbec 20%, Syrah 9%, Merlot 7%, Petit Verdot 1% Region : USA / California/ Mount Veeder Maker : David Guffy Notes : The 19 Block has aromas of cedar and black liquorice. A rich entry of black cherry and ripe plum is supported in the mid-palate by oak nuances of vanilla, caramel and biscuit. A long, silky finish of polished tannins suggest immediate approachability but the wine will continue to improve over the next 3-4 years Serve : The layers of flavour in this wnie pair well with complex foods, including braised or grilled meats like lamb, pork or duck; spring or sweet onions; earthy flavours such as mushrooms, eggplant and fennel and strong cheeses. ABV : 14.5%

Hess Estate produces top rated Cabernets for their Hess Collection line from their 300 plus acres of vineyards on Mt. Veeder in Napa Valley. This wine is unique to the Collection as it is a meritage style blend of 6 different grape varieties, all sourced from their Veeder Summit Vineyard on the very top of the mountain. Nineteen individual blocks from this 116 acre vineyard are vinified separately and then blended together to showcase the quality, character and diversity that Mt. Veeder fruit can express. This 2008 won the Decanter Magazine Regional Trophy for the Best American Red Blend over $20. It also scored 90 points in Wine Enthusiast Magazine, 91 in Wine & Spirits and 92 in the Wine Spectator who said "Fresh, pure and snappy, with vivid blackberry and wild berry, currant, sage and cedar. Well-built, showing firm acidity and just the right amount of tannins. Drink now through 2024."

Granat mit rubinroten Refelxen. Intensives Bouquet nach warmen Backpflaumen, dahinter reife Waldbeeren, Giandujanote, Holunderessenz, Baumnuss und filigraner Rosenduft. Edle Tannine, gut stützend mit perfekt fliessender Textur, feiner Karamellfilm mit Cappucinotouch, bleibt lange haften und füllt den Gaumen komplett aus, trotzdem mit der typischen Balance. Im nicht enden wollenden Finale, Cassisgelee, Mokkanote, Bienenwachs und Kirschtabak.
