The wine aromas open up to blackberry and cassis with a hint of cedar in the background. The wine has a rich entry, which leads to a full mid-palate and a long, soft finish. The flavors mimic that of the aroma with dark fruit and a hint of chocolate on the finish.

The Hess Collection vineyards represent the diverse growing conditions seen in the Napa Valley. We grow grapes in both cool climates and hot. Our sites are gently sloped along the Bay to steep in the mountains. History has taught us what is best for our vines, and we learn how to better tend to our vineyards with each passing vintage. This has allowed us to develop site specific viticulture programs for each of our ranches. At the same time we've instituted a number of environmentally-friendly initiatives that keep us at the forefront of sustainable vineyard practices.
