1985 The Hess Collection Allomi Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) The Allomi Vineyard is relatively young, and it has one thing that Cabernet Sauvignon surely loves: some heat, and a long, lingering growing season that allows fruit to ripen slowly on the vine, gaining complexity and layers of flavor. There’s a hint of floral aromas on the nose, with vanilla, oak spice and even a touch of pepper. Full bodied red fruit flavors typical for Cabernet are joined by notes of currant and blackberry with moderate, well-integrated tannins with wonderful balance and a soft, round, almost lush mouthfeel.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2009 Vintage) Hess Veeder Hills Vineyard, altitude of 600-1,120 feet above sea level. Tasting Notes: Aromas of toffee and wild mountain blackberries fill the glass, while the rich mid-palate of boysenberry coulis parlays into a long, silky finish.
