Hess Collection

2017 35th Anniversary Cabernet Sauvignon, Mount Veeder Estate

This limited release, estate grown Cabernet was crafted from carefully chosen blocks in our Veeder Hills vineyard. The 2017 vintage marks the 35th anniversary for The Hess Collection, and this special bottling pays homage to Donald Hess and his unwavering vision to challenge convention.

"It takes intuition to look 35 years into the future and know that high on Mount Veeder would be home to Napa Valley's best Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep garnet in color, this wine delivers inviting aromas of dark berries and cedar spice that lead to a silky wine on the palate. This Cabernet is driven by delicious notes of blueberry and cassis that marry seamlessly with soft touches of toasted cinnamon and baking spice as mouth-filling tannins linger on a long, pleasant finish. It's truly an honor to craft our very finest wine from this special and wondrous place, and with this wine, we salute Founder Donald Hess, who saw clearly the potential that is now being fully realized."" -Dave Guffy, Director of Winemaking
