The Hess Collection Red Blend Mt. Veeder Mountain Cuvée 2004
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. -Dave Guffy, Winemaker
I really enjoyed this - easy to drink smooth mertitage. Paired wonderfully with a nice steak. Fruit on the mid palette - oka was well integrated.
This cuvée is balanced, soft and delicious. What a nose. Definitely take the time to let this open up in the decanter for at least an hour. Lots of fruit, but not a fruit bomb, with lots of blackberry and cherry. Just great.
