The Hess Collection Lion Tamer

Napa Valley Red Wine
2015 / 750 ml.

Item #: 44084

SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 15, 2018
Smooth and harmonious, with supple cherry, dark berry, cedar, gravel and floral notes that glide across the palate gracefully, ending long and pure. Malbec, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2028. 4,547 cases made. (James Laube)
RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Oct 2017
Composed of 50% Malbec, 23% Zinfandel and 11% Petite Sirah with smaller parts of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Mourvèdre, the 2015 Proprietary Red The Lion Tamer is scented of warm blackcurrants, preserved plums and dark chocolate with touches of pencil shavings, dried Provence herbs and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the palate with ripe black fruit and plush tannins, finishing long and lively. (Lisa Perrotti-Brown)
VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Jul 2018
The 2015 Lion Tamer shows just how compelling Malbec can be on Mt. Veeder. Succulent, resonant and super-expressive, the 2015 has so much to recommend it. A rush of dark cherry, plum, smoke, new leather, licorice and spice builds in this striking, extroverted wine from Hess.

Domaine Cabirau Serge & Nicolas Maury Sec

2012 / 750 ml.

Item #: 37535

RP91+91–93 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Apr 2014
Moving to the Serge & Nicolas cuvee, this cuvee is mostly Grenache (from 60-year-old vines and brought up all in tank), with smaller components of Syrah and Carignan (which are brought up in 500-liter demi-muids). Looking first at the 2012 Maury Sec Serge & Nicolas, it exhibits an inky purple color to go with decadently styled notes of cassis, black raspberry, spice box, licorice and ground herbs. Medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, with a fabulous texture, it should have 5–7 years of longevity.

Bodega Numanthia Termes

2020 / 750 ml.

Item #: 16685

JS9494 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, January 2, 2023
Gorgeous floral character to the crushed stone and purple fruit. Lavender and sage, too. Full-bodied with chewy tannins and a savory yet crunchy finish. Dark mushroom and fresh earth. Super length and brightness for this wine. Spring release in 2023. (James Suckling)
SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Apr 30, 2024
Ripe and fruit-forward on the nose, though more restrained on the palate, this red offers flavors of blackberry paste, dried blueberry and cranberry fruit woven through dried sage, marjoram, warmed spices and cocoa powder, backed by rich notes of fresh earth and iron. There’s a creamy nappe to the texture, while fine tannins firm up the supple finish. Drink now through 2030. 10,000 cases made, 8,000 cases imported. (Alison Napjus)
