Hess The Lion Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Mt. Veeder|
The lion has been the emblem of the Hess Family for nine generations. It has come to symbolize the bold and persevering nature of founder Donald Hess and our winery home on Mount Veeder. In this vintage of The Lion Cabernet Sauvignon, I find the nose filled with generous aromas of blue and black fruits - blackberry, blueberry and a hint of dark chocolate. The palate displays a beautiful spectrum of rich, ripe, dark fruits supported by distinctive barrel spice flavors and mouth coating tannins.
