In 1978, Donald Hess established the Hess Collection Winery on the site of one of the region's oldest Mount Veeder wineries. Determined to defy convention and pursue winemaking at elevation, Donald was a pioneer by nature. Today, The Hess Families latest generation of winemakers continue Donald's traditions and legacy -- using the rugged Mount Veeder volcanic slopes and combinations of soil & microclimates to yield elegant wines with rich, complex flavors.

What is the Best Rated The Hess Collection Wine?
The Hess Collection Lion Tamer Red Blend 2018 brings all the roar of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah, and when blended with Malbec, produces a big, lush wine that finishes with smooth and tamed round tannins. Hess has long been known for their big, bold, mountain Cabernets and a little Malbec finds its way into many of their blends. The name Lion Tamer has become a nickname for Malbec because they use it as their tannin tamer. Much like a Lion Tamer who uses a deft hand to soothe powerful, instinctive animals, Winemaker Dave Guffy uses Malbec to soothe powerful tannins.
Here's what Wine Spectator had to say: Rated 92 - Dense huckleberry and blackberry pie notes are rich and succulent on a dense, velvety frame, with details of dark chocolate, chai tea, sarsaparilla and fresh sage linger on the long, expressive finish. Malbec, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Carignan. Drink now through 2034.
