Hess Select North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon
Rugged, often wild, with never-ending complexity, this unique growing region has long been home to advocates for familyfocused sustainable viticulture. A relatively mild Mediterranean climate with predictable heating and cooling cycles is overlaid on a mélange of well-drained volcanic and gravelly soils perfect for concentrating vine energy. Rolling hillsides and benchlands offer prime vineyard sites producing flavorful fruit with layers of agreeable acids and balanced tannins.
