The Lions Head Collection features top of the line wines from Hess Family Wine Estates. A fifth-generation, family-owned company, Hess has always been about quality–in all their labels: The Hess Collection, Lions Head Collection, Hess Select, MacPhail, and Artezin from California–and Bodegas Colome and Amalaya in Argentina.
The Lions Head label was established by the latest generation of the Hess family to showcase premium fruit from California’s finest vineyards:
2017 Panthera Russian River Chardonnay is 100% Russian River fruit aged to creamy perfection in new French oak. At 14.8% abv, this Chardonnay is more a little decadent. 45.00
2017 Lion Tamer Cabernet Sauvignon gets its name from the 8% Malbec (used to tame the “Cabernet lion”)…there is also Petite Sirah in blend–adding even more color and depth. Mouthwatering and layered: mocha, berries, toast–all wrapped in silky tannins. Yikes. 60.00
