The Hess Collection released its first new estate Cabernet Sauvignon in 20 years. Named after the recently acquired Iron Corral Vineyard, the 2019 Iron Corral Cabernet Sauvignon is the most recent addition to the estate wines from The Hess Collection, joining items such as Hess Collection Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon and The Lion Cabernet Sauvignon. Striking a balance of Mountain and Valley Floor Estates, the 2019 Iron Corral Cabernet Sauvignon is complex yet accessible, designed for immediate enjoyment with the capability to age gracefully and be enjoyed for years to come, according to the company. The intensity and structure of the Hess Mount Veeder vineyards combines with the supple, plush qualities of its Napa Valley floor estates to create a wine representative of the best the region has to offer, it adds. The 2019 vintage is a blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot, displaying the full fruit retention of a classically styled Napa Valley Cabernet. The wine was aged 18 months in 40% new French Oak, resulting in a well-balanced wine. With a suggested retail price of $60, the Hess Collection Iron Corral Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 will be available in stores this fall. It also is available on HessCollection.com.
