Hestan Vineyards

The Hestan wines are a cellar selection of the very finest lots produced from the Hestan vineyards by critically acclaimed winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown. These wines are opulent and hedonistic, a powerful example of the vineyards' depth and complexity. Each year, fewer than 750 cases are made of each wine.

Deep ruby red with a bouquet of violets, cassis and sweet pipe tobacco, this wine has delicious blueberry, blackberry and black plum flavors. The bright fruit entry turns smooth on the palate, with beautiful structure and a rich, long finish”. In keeping with the Bordeaux tradition, winemaker Jeff Gaffner blends for depth, nuance and balance using the Bordeaux varietals planted to Hestan Vineyards. The lots are kept separate throughout winemaking to retain individual block and varietal characters. Small capacity fermentation tanks, carefully timed pump-overs and punch- downs, a mix of native and cultured yeasts, tight grained cooperage and extended aging result in signature wines noted for their elegance and longevity.
