K&L Notes

Hess put themselves on the map in the late '80s and early '90s by making some of the best value wines in the market from serious vineyards on Mount Veeder and near the San Pablo bay, not to mention from purchased fruit across California. The problem, as some saw it, is that the brand lost its identity and dedication to quality sometime in the early '00s. They created more tiered labels than anyone could understand, or keep straight, and what they built slowly receded to just another brand on supermarket or "big box" stores shelves. So then why, you may ask, are we putting these wines in front of you? It's because Hess has completely rededicated themselves to quality over the last few years, on all levels. They've gone green in the vineyards (sustainable and certified Napa Green), cut way back on production and are focusing on estate-grown wines from the aforementioned vineyards. All in all, it is a great comeback story capped off by the affordable and tremendous wines that we have today.
