Hess Collection 2010 19 Block Cuvee, Mt. Veeder, Napa Valley
Hess Estate produces top rated Cabernets for their Hess Collection line from their 300 plus acres of vineyards on Mt. Veeder in Napa Valley. This wine is unique to the Collection as it is a meritage style blend of 5 different grape varieties, all sourced from their Veeder Summit Vineyard on the very top of the mountain. Nineteen individual blocks from this 116 acre vineyard are vinified separately and then blended together to showcase the quality, character and diversity that Mt. Veeder fruit can express. A blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Malbec, 11% Syrah, 6% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot aged 19 months in 58% new French oak. Wine & Spirits Magazine scored it 93 points saying "The scent of pinesap and the cool spice of cardamom place this on Mt. Veeder. In fact, the blend is based on cabernet sauvignon from the Veeder Summit Vineyard, rising to 2,000 feet, and includes malbec, syrah, merlot and petite verdot. While the texture is as sleek as satin, the flavor complexity lies in the firm structure, lifted by peppery spice. Itís a clean, rich red to decant for rack of lamb."

    Comments about Hess Collection 2010 19 Block Cuvee, Mt. Veeder, Napa Valley:

    Great Cab based blend from Hess. Last three years have all been really good, 2008 thru 2010. All have slight differences, but extremely consistent and powerful. Could easily be twice the price.

    The 2010 is bursting with multiple red and black berry fruits, many complex spices, great acidity, good firm tannins, and an exceptional long tasty and smooth finish. This wine will also cellar for 4 to 7 years easily, and show even more richness and complexity of flavors. Hess higher end wines are really very good. Also try their Reserve Napa Cabernet Sav. and Chardonnay, both delicious!

    • Beef, Chocolate, Game, Pizza and Pasta, Spicy Food

      Comments about Hess Collection 2010 19 Block Cuvee, Mt. Veeder, Napa Valley:

      There is real refinement and elegance in this sleek red blend. Lovely cassis, black cherry, chocolate and baking spices layer over the forest floor and vanilla notes. Tannins feel refined and the acidity is evident giving a lovely mouth feel. Will improve for sure, but it is drinking quite nicely as is.
