Lion Tamer The Hess Collection Wine Red Napa Valley - 750 Ml
Red Wine, Napa Valley

The lion has been the emblem of the Hess family for nine generations. It has come to symbolize the bold and preserving nature of founder Donald Hess and our winery home on Mount Veeder. The Hess Collection has long been known for its big, bold, mountain Cabernet Sauvignons and a little Malbec finds its way into many of our blends. The name Lion Tamer as become a nickname for Malbec because we use it as our tannin tamer. Much like a lion tamer who uses a deft hand to soothe powerful, instinctive animals, winemaker David Guffy uses Malbec to soothe powerful tannins. This red blend brings all the roar with Malbec and a touch of Zinfandel, Petite Sarah, and Merlot, produces a big, lush wine that finishes with smooth and tamed round tannins. 55% Malbec. 15% Zinfandel. 12% Cabernet Sauvignon. 10% Petite Sarah. 8% Merlot. 14.8% Alc. by Vol. Produced and bottled by the Hess Collection Winery, American Canyon, Napa County, CA USA.
