Supple, fleshy, substantial.
The Hess family emblem is the lion, which adorns each bottle of Hess wine. The company was established by Swiss businessman and art collector Donald Hess, who also owns wineries in other parts of the world.
A consistently pleasing and forward wine the 2018 does not disappoint.
Preserved cherries and cassis aromas are woven with chocolate, pipe tobacco, vanilla liqueur, sweet brown spices and wet earth.

Pairs great with Gone Crackers Canadian Chedder & Chive
