Hess Collection Iron Corral Cabernet Sauvignon 2021
Iron Corral Cabernet Sauvignon is named for our Iron Corral Vineyard and is our first new estate wine in 20 years. A beautiful balance of Mountain and Valley Floor Estates, this wine delivers beautiful, full fruit retention, enhanced by the complexity we have come to expect by integrating structured fruit from our mountain vineyards. Iron Corral Cabernet is complex yet accessible, designed for immediate enjoyment with the capability to age gracefully and be enjoyed for years to come. Named as “Top Values In 2019 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon” by Jeb Dunnuck.
This is a classic Napa Cabernet led by bold black fruit flavors, primarily black cherry, and black currant, with elements of espresso and dark chocolate intertwining between the layered dark fruit notes. A wine of quality and depth, refined elements of oak showcase a composition built for aging, yet balanced, well-integrated tannins allow this wine to show beautifully for those unwilling to wait.” – Dave Guffy, Director of Winemaking

The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Iron Corral Estate is rock-solid, with a rich, velvety, medium to full-bodied profile that’s very much in the style of the vintage. Nicely balanced, with a lot of redcurrants, spiced plum, cedary incense, and tobacco, it has outstanding balance as well as length on the palate. It’s well worth seeking out. 93pts JD
