About

HESS MAVERICK RANCHES CABERNET SAUVIGNON

From pioneering Mount Veeder, to the far reaches of the Napa Valley, Donald Hess was always drawn to the rough and rugged. A beautiful expression of Paso Robles, this wine pays homage to our winery’s founder and brings the untamed spirit of the Central Coast into a bright, approachable Cabernet Sauvignon. Hailing from this wild-hearted wine region, Hess Maverick Ranches showcases the robust style Paso Robles has to offer.

TASTE WITH THE WINEMAKER

"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

2021 VINTAGE NOTES

Vintage 2021 delivered superb results. Spring was marked by occasional rains, which brought welcome soil saturation, and cooler temperatures, allowing fruit to mature at a steady pace. Summer helped the grapevines ripen completely and conditions continued to be almost ideal throughout August and September. The warm days and cool nights of the fall season allowed gradual sugar accumulation and longer hang times, promising fruit of the highest quality with structural beauty. With a slightly later harvest and a smaller crop yield, fruit was picked at its peak, for a small yet mighty vintage promising exceptional flavor in bottle.
