Hess Collection Block 19 Cuvée Red 2013

Out of stock

We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

This blend is led by Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon, both signature grapes and easily recognizable for bold, juicy black fruitflavors and aromas of blackberries and wild mountain blueberries. Tannins are tamed by careful aging in new French oak, with resulting vanilla, oak spice and hints of clove and cinnamon layering welcomed accents through a balanced, lingering finish. Mount Veeder is Napa's coolest and wettest mountain growingregion, resulting in harvest dates well into November, allowing fruit to ripen in an almost leisurely journey to your glass. This wine is crafted as the "19 Block" blend for immediate enjoyment, but this wine will continue to evolve and shine for years to come.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Proprietary Red 19 Block Mountain Cuvée is a blend of 61% Malbec, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot and Syrah, all from the estate on Mt. Veeder. This blend has worked well, exhibiting an opaque purple color, a beautiful nose of incense, camphor, blackberry, licorice and a touch of espresso. It is full-bodied and concentrated, but with supple tannins and a roundness and juiciness - even for a 2013. This should age nicely for at least 10 or more years.

Wine EnthusiastThis is an estate-grown blend of 61% Malbec, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot and 3% Syrah. It sizzles in a mix of huckleberry and blueberry, full-bodied and dusty in tannin. Its juicy and lifted by moderate acidity, with oaky accents of vanilla, nutmeg and clove.

Wine SpectatorIntense and rugged, with a rustic property to the dense, extracted dark berry, crushed rock and cedary oak flavors. Hard to predict where this one is going as it is quite awkward. Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Syrah. Drink now through 2024. 8,680 cases made.
