"The lion has been the emblem of the Hess Family for nine generations. It has come to symbolize the bold and persevering nature of founder Donald Hess and our winery home on Mount Veeder. “Live Each Day with the Heart and Courage of The Lion” has been the Hess Family credo for nine generations and The Lion Cabernet Sauvignon represents the very best Cabernet Sauvignon we produce from our estate vineyards on Mount Veeder in the very best vintages. The 2013 vintage marks the first vintage that is a winemaking collaboration between consulting winemaker Celia Welch and Hess Winemaker Dave Guffy." —winemaker
"A barrel sample of the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon The Lion, which is 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Malbec, also comes from their Mount Veeder holdings. A beautiful floral note intermixed with black raspberry and blueberry suggests a certain cool climate, but the power, richness, texture and full-bodied intensity of this wine are impressive. It’s not yet in bottle, so I’ll wait to see before giving it my final verdict, but this is promising and impressive wine." —Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
