Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For The Hess Collection Lion Tamer Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Lion Tamer is the power of the Napa Valley harnessed. These wines are a pure representation of the winemaker’s craft and their ability to tame the unruly tannins of mountain fruit. The name Lion Tamer has become our nickname for Malbec because we use this grape as a blending variety to tame powerful tannins.

We add a touch of Malbec to the blend to develop a softness in the tannins, making this a smooth and seamless wine. These mouthwatering tannins surround the palate, framing layered elements of bright blueberry, toasty oak and deliciously rich mocha. In crafting this wine, our goal is to achieve perfect balance, with well-integrated vanilla oak notes and a lengthy, elegant finish.

Critic Ratings

Wine Enthusiast Review - Published 5/1/2021 - Rated 91:
With 10% Petite Sirah and 7% Malbec, this Cabernet Sauvignon is effusively bright in dense layers of fruit. A moderate grip of tannin helps to give it additional power and length around a juicy midpalate of blueberry and vanilla. VIRGINIE BOONE
