LION TAMER

The name “Lion Tamer” has become a nickname for Malbec because we use it as our tannin tamer. Much like a Lion Tamer who uses a deft hand to soothe powerful, instinctive animals, Winemaker Dave Guffy uses Malbec to soothe powerful tannins. This red blend brings all the roar of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah, and when blended with Malbec, produces a big, lush wine that finishes with smooth and tamed round tannins.

NAPA VALLEY CHARDONNAY

The Su’skol Vineyard Chardonnay is carefully farmed with multiple clones to emphasize fruit with wonderful acidity and balance. Crisp and clean, our low oak Chardonnay showcases an aromatic musqué, resulting in aromas and flavors of apple, white pear and a slight touch of tropical fruits, accented by aromas of honeysuckle.

NAPA VALLEY ALLOMI CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Our Allomi Cabernet Sauvignon offers distinct notes of vanilla and oak spice with classic red fruit flavors set off by currant and blackberry along with moderate, well-integrated tannins showing a round, plush mouthfeel.

Company details

OUR FOUNDERS
A common theme runs through the uncommon wineries
in the portfolio of Hess Family Wine Estates.

An unparalleled passion and curiosity combines with a pioneering spirit that stretches over five generations of the Hess family since 1844, and on into the next generation of family leadership appointed by Founder Donald Hess.

Each of the family’s wineries – in California, Argentina, and South Africa – produce outstanding, highly acclaimed wines that stand alongside the very best. Quiet leadership in sustainable practices dates back more than 30 years when Donald Hess first came to the rugged hillsides of Mount Veeder in Napa Valley, and directed that Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards be crafted while winegrowers respect and nurture the land by “returning what we take.”

Today, Hess Family Wine Estates is recognized as one of the premier family-owned and family-led companies in the world of wine.
