The Hess Collection Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 1989

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Tightly knit firmly tannic with mineral black cherry currant and berryish flavors finishing with crisp firm tannins. Lacks some concentration and depth.--1989 California Cabernet retrospective. Drink now through 2004. 2 000 cases made. (JL) Wine Spectator.
