About Hess Collection 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon, Mt. Veeder, Napa Valley

Mount Veeder is distinguished among Napa's mountain districts for having the highest elevation, coolest growing season and geologically diverse soils. Hess Collection Mount Veeder Cab is an expression of the unique mountain climate it comes from, sourced entirely from Hess' Veeder Hills Vineyard. The elevation of this vineyard ranges from 600-1,120 feet. This 2016 Cab is a blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon and 16% Malbec. It was aged 22 months in 80% new French oak barrels.

Wine Enthusiast scored this 93 points saying"Thick, herbal and earthy, this is a fantastic expression of the appellation. Firm tannins show structure and measured richness around thickets of black cherry, dark chocolate and earthy sage, finishing on a hint of black pepper."

The Wine Advocate scored this 95 points saying "The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Mount Veeder aged for 22 months in 75% new French oak. No 2017 vintage of this wine will be made. Deep garnet-purple colored, it delivers a very serious nose of baked plums, crème de cassis, dried mulberries and dark chocolate with nuances of tapenade, chargrill, licorice and menthol with a waft of tree bark. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is built like a brick house with a solid structure of firm, grainy tannins and oodles of freshness supporting the taut, muscular black fruit, finishing on a provocative mineral note."
