Hess Maverick Ranches
From pioneering Mount Veeder, to the far reaches of the Napa Valley, Donald Hess was always drawn to the rough and rugged.
We make this wine to pay homage to our winery’s founder, bringing the untamed spirit of the Central Coast into a bright, approachable Cabernet Sauvignon. Hailing from a wild-hearted wine region, Hess Maverick Ranches showcases the robust style Paso Robles fans know and love.
Paso Robles is considered the wild west of wine growing – characterized by rule breaking varietal diversity and an innovative spirit. This appellation provides a warm climate with a strong influence from the coast. The micro-climate sees long, hot days cooled by breezes through the Templeton gap. The vines rest in sandy loam soil due to neighboring dry creeks and riverbeds, known for producing richly textured, high quality wines.
“With intense aromas of bright red cherry and raspberry, followed by notes of cedar and black pepper, this wine captures the essence of Paso Robles. A bold entrance of berry compote accompanied by layers of juicy, full raspberry notes are complimented by the smooth tannins and lasting finish of chocolate and roasted espresso.” – Dave Guffy, Director of Winemaking
