Made from grapes grown right here at Mont La Salle, this estate reserve Cabernet is handmade by Dave Guffy, The Hess Collection’s celebrated winemaker, with grapes from the two-acre Mont La Salle Vineyard on Mt. Veeder in Napa. Brother Timothy wine is a labor of love, generously donated by Hess Persson Estates. Less than 275 cases are produced each year and we sell only to our friends and benefactors.
2018 & 2019 Brother Timothy Mont La Salle Vineyard Chardonnay
Floral and tropical aromas, crisp acidity, and subtle oak notes. The Su’skol Vineyard benefits from its proximity to the San Pablo and San Francisco Bays. Situated fewer than 10 miles from San Pablo Bay, the cooling marine influence on this vineyard is profound. Morning fog and afternoon breezes lower the average daily temperature, creating an ideal climate for growing Chardonnay. The vineyard is named for the native Su’skol people who used the site as a meeting place and valued the nearby sources of fish and game.
2018 & 2019 Brother Timothy Mont La Salle Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
This full-bodied wine celebrates the winemaking style of beloved Brother Timothy while highlighting the signature features of a true Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon. A hallmark of this well-structured wine includes the aromas of juicy, ripe raspberry, cocoa, and softer notes of violet. The 2018 vintage displays intense flavors of dark fruit, layers of sweet currant liqueur, and subtle hints of vanilla, while the new oak barrels deliver spice and milk chocolate elements. 77% Cab Sauv, 12% Malbec, and 11 % Merlot.
