    Hess Lion Tamer Cabernet Sauvignon 2019, skillfully crafted by winemaker Stephanie Pope, redefines the essence of a Napa Valley Cabernet. This remarkable wine harmonizes the robust nature of valley floor Cabernet Sauvignon with the graceful influence of mountain-grown Malbec. The result is a captivating blend that showcases supple tannins enveloping the palate, encasing layers of succulent black currant, luscious dark plum, and tantalizing hints of espresso. Oak aging imparts well-integrated notes of baking spice, culminating in an exquisite and refined finish.

    Stephanie Pope’s winemaking expertise is enhanced by the Lions Head Cellar, where cutting-edge technology brings her vision to life. Utilizing an optical sorter, only the finest quality berries are chosen for fermentation. Advanced tanks enable constant monitoring, allowing micro-adjustments to be made throughout the winemaking process, ensuring exceptional quality.

The inclusion of this varietal bestows a velvety texture to the tannins, imparting a seamless and indulgent character to the wine. The supple tannins gently caress the palate, framing layers of juicy black cherry, opulent dark plum, and a subtle undertone of decadent mocha. Well-integrated vanilla and oak notes lend depth and complexity, leading to a lingering and graceful finish.

    With 10% Malbec and 5% Petite Sirah, this is a dark, jammy and richly layered red, offering smoked meat, graphite and black olive. Lengthy, it is soft and supple on the palate.

    Tobacco, spice box, lead pencil, and both red and black currant-like fruits emerge from the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Lion Tamer, a medium-bodied, supple, elegant 2019 that has sweet tannins, solid depth of fruit, and a great finish. Drink this total charmer over the coming 7-8 years, if not longer.

    Concentrated nose of blackberry and blackcurrant jam, cocoa, cloves and vanilla. It’s full-bodied with firm, succulent tannins. Rich, generous layers of jammy fruit, sweet tobacco and spices. A little confected. Try from 2022.
