Hess Collection Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Mt. Veeder|
Wine AdvocateComposed of 81% Cabernet, 16% Malbec and a dollop a Petit Verdot, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Mt. Veeder has a very deep purple-black color and nose of crushed blackcurrants, blackberries and plums with hints of cedar chest, dried Provence herbs, rose petals and menthol with a hint of rare beef. Full-bodied, concentrated and vibrant in the mouth, it has tons of energy framed by grainy tannins and a lively backbone, finishing long and earthy.
Wine EnthusiastJuicy black cherry and grippy oak are the stars of the show in this delicious red wine, softened by the addition of 16% Malbec. Elongated tannins support the leathery texture as highlights of cedar and sage play on.
Wine SpectatorSpicy, mocha-laced oak gives this a seam of creaminess, highlighting the dense earth, gravel and cedary dark berry flavors. Just when you think you've cleared the tannic bar they rally on the finish. Best from 2020 through 2032. 7,594 cases made.
