Wine Details

Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) the growing season repeated a stellar performance, much like vintage 2012, with “early, even and excellent” the watchword throughout napa. winter was a warmer in Pope Valley than is the norm, and spring brought moderate temperatures with ittle moisture, encouraging an early bud break. grapes languished lazily on the vine in the typical summer heat, ripening fully with complex, rich flavors. some september rain was quickly followed by breezy, warm and sunny weather keeping the harvest on track and on schedule, with picking at allomi beginning in late september.

Winemaker's Notes

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.
