The Hess Collection Allomi Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Wine Details

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 2010 Vintage) By selecting the best blocks each vintage, Hess produces a distinctive wine notable for its depth and complexity. This wine offers a lush, firm texture, with good acidity, firm tannins and distinctive fruit forward flavors. The wine is smooth and supple, but with a broad base of tannins that give it heft and age worthiness.
