Where It's From

Region / California

View more wines from California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

Country / United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.

This bold Chardonnay shows aromas of honeysuckle, coconut, lychee and tropical flowers. The palate conveys classic California-style flavors of butterscotch, caramel and more tropical fruit and flowers, all bolstered by bright acidity. (Matt Kettmann)

Overtly toasty and spicy up front before melting away to reveal a core of apricot pastry, baked apple, mouthwatering lemon curd and honeysuckle flavors. A note of dried pineapple joins hints of tarragon and nougat on the creamy finish. Drink now. 3,700 cases made. (MaryAnn Worobiec)
RP9191 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 15th Jun 2023
The 2021 Chardonnay One Sixteen, matured for 14 months in 34% new French oak, takes some time to shake off its youthful crème brûlée and allspice tones to reveal apricot, beeswax and honeysuckle aromas. The medium-bodied palate offers powerful fruit and oak spice and satisfying freshness to lift the finish. (Erin Brooks)
JD9090 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 7/21/2023
A youthful yellow with silver hue, the 2021 Chardonnay One-Sixteen is lifted with aromas of fresh pineapple, a touch of petrol, and wet stone. Medium to full-bodied, it is forward with notes of ripe apple fruit up front that tapers to a more citrus-driven finish, with lemon pith and a chalky texture. Drink 2023–2028. (Audrey Frick)

Item #: 96946

SP9494 pts. - Wine Spectator - Mar 31, 2022
Gorgeously lush and seductive up front, showing açaí, blueberry and boysenberry compote flavors that are hefty but glide through, with anise, apple wood and fruitcake details that seemingly sparkle as it all cruises through the finish. Features a perfectly embedded graphite spine underneath it all, which should let this version evolve slowly in the cellar. Delivers a flashy display of fruit carried off with aplomb. Best from 2023 through 2038. 693 cases made. (James Molesworth)
WE9494 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 3/1/2022
Supple with underlying tension and complexity, this wine, blended with 16% Malbec, is brimming and bright in cassis, red cherry and plum. Dried herb, cedar and a hint of sage accent the edges of the concentrated core of enduring richness.

Lush and deeply fruity, with crushed plum, mulled blackberry and açaí berry compote flavors that meld nicely together, while melted black licorice, black tea and mulling spice notes add range and detail. Features a lushness that makes this approachable now, but shows a strong underlying iron spine that will let this evolve with cellaring. Best from 2023 through 2036. 4,464 cases made.

RP9494 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Oct 2017
Composed of 81% Cabernet, 16% Malbec and a dollop a Petit Verdot, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Mt. Veeder has a very deep purple-black color and nose of crushed blackcurrants, blackberries and plums with hints of cedar chest, dried Provence herbs, rose petals and menthol with a hint of rare beef. Full-bodied, concentrated and vibrant in the mouth, it has tons of energy framed by grainy tannins and a lively backbone, finishing long and earthy.
VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Jul 2018
A powerful, dense wine, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon (Mount Veeder) packs plenty of mountain structure and complexity to play off the rich, dense fruit. Espresso, mocha, black cherry, new leather and spice add myriad shades of nuance to a wine endowed with real character.
WE9292 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/31/2017
Juicy black cherry and grippy oak are the stars of the show in this delicious red wine, softened by the addition of 16% Malbec. Elongated tannins support the leathery texture as highlights of cedar and sage play on.

The Hess Collection The Lion | Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 / 750 ml.

Cabernet Sauvignon
2013 / 750 ml.

Item #: 85052

RP9696 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Dec 2016
The last bottled wine I tasted is also spectacular, and rivals the finest wines ever made at Hess — the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate The Lion. It is 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot and obviously a cuvée meant to be the best Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated wine they produce. They didn’t make it in 2009, 2010, 2011 or 2012, so this is the first vintage in some time. Inky purple in color it offers notes of lead pencil shavings, white flowers, blueberries and blackberries. The Mt. Veeder hallmark of blue fruits and white flowers definitely comes through in this supple, opaque purple wine that is full-bodied, built like a skyscraper and super-impressive. If this is what we can continue to expect from Hess Collection, they are on a quick, express elevator to the top. There are 431 cases of this gorgeous wine.
WE9292 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 3/1/2017
A new, high-end offering from this producer, this wine is made to celebrate and luxuriate in the appellation, which it does in its ying-yang of dark chocolate and cedar. Bright acidity uplifts a soft, creamy texture and firm, subtle tannin, allowing the blackberry bramble to speak.
SP8989 pts. - Wine Spectator - Web only – 2016
Though big and intense, this is also polished, revealing a sense of refinement and elegance. Offers a core of licorice-scented blackberry, wild berry, cedar, herb, mocha and underbrush flavors. Ends with well-integrated tannins. Drink now through 2030. 431 cases made.

Aromas of cola and baked berry show on the rich nose of this bottling. There’s a fresh blast of berry and then compelling forest-floor flavors on the palate, with hints of sagebrush and juniper. (Matt Kettmann)

Lastly, the 2021 Lion Tamer Red Blend is an eclectic blend of 61% Malbec, 14% Zinfandel, 15% Petite Sirah, 9% Merlot, and a splash of Petit Verdot. It’s a sweetly fruited, forward, pleasure-bent beauty with lots of blueberry and raspberry fruit, medium to full body, sweet tannins, and some chocolaty, spicy, exotic flower-like aromas and flavors. It’s a big mouthful of ripe, pure fruit and perfect for enjoying over the coming 4–6 years or more. (Jeb Dunnuck)
