Named after our recently acquired Iron Corral Vineyard, the Iron Corral Cabernet Sauvignon is the newest addition to our Hess estate wines. A beautiful balance of Mountain and Valley Floor Estates, this wine is complex yet elegant, crafted to enjoy now, yet has the capability to age gracefully and be enjoyed for years to come.
At a Glance
Taste + Style
“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
Vineyard + Production
Iron Corral Cabernet Sauvignon is named for our Iron Corral Vineyard, a 420-acre parcel nestled at the base of Howell Mountain which was once home to early Napa ranchers. The supple, plush qualities of our Napa Valley floor estates combines with the intensity and structure of our Mount Veeder vineyards to create a wine representative of the best the region has to offer. The wine was aged 18 months in 40% new French Oak, resulting in a well-balanced wine designed to age beautifully.
Food + Wine Pairing
The layered, complex flavors of this Cabernet beg to be paired alongside grilled meats like ribeye, lamb and duck or vegetables with rich umami flavor like pan-seared maitake mushrooms with brown butter, garlic and thyme.
