2019 Hess Maverick Ranch Cab, Paso Robles
Concentrated upon entry, this wine delivers luxurious notes of black currant, plum, and black cherry. Finely-grained tannins provide a round, balanced mouthfeel. The layers of juicy black fruit lead to elements of dark chocolate supported by a subtle vanilla oak spice that adds to the complexity of the wine and shows its finesse on the long, lingering finish.

Donald Hess believed the volcanic slopes of Mount Veeder provided the ideal combination of soils and microclimates to yield elegant wines with rich, complex flavors. The Hess Collection winemaking team crafts exceptional luxury wines lauded by the critics.
