Hess has always been one of my loyal standby wines.  Its on a lot of wine lists through out the country and they have a couple different "levels"..allomi, collection and my favorite - 19 block red blend.
I like how Mt Veeder fruit tastes.  Its leaner.  It has more layers and a really great lingering finish.  Well this wine does anyway. 

The winery is up on top of MT and beautiful.  More of an art gallery then a winery...Donald Hess owns a LOT of art and you can walk through his 3 levels of amazing pieces.  A true lover of food, wine and art and this place has it all.
