2017 Hess Lion Tamer Cabernet Sauvignon 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. The name ‘Lion Tamer’ has become a nickname for Malbec because they use it as the 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.

  1. WE

    With 11% Petite Sirah and 8% Malbec in the blend, this is no shy undertaking. Robust, fleshy dark fruit flavors are enveloped by a voluptuous texture. Currant and toasted oak form the core of the midpalate as a hint of cigar comes into play on the finish.

  2. WA

    A blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petite Sirah and 8% Malbec, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Lion Tamer is a little closed to begin, giving way to earthy scents of tilled black soil, charcoal, truffles and crushed rocks over a core of warm cassis, plum preserves, cigar box and camphor. Full-bodied and densely packed with juicy black fruits and earthy sparks, it has a lovely line of freshness and a firm level of grainy tannins to support, finishing long with a minty kick.
