Hess Allomi Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Wine EnthusiastThis blend is dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, with smaller amounts of Petite Sirah, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Merlot. Bold black fruit expand on the palate, with a lengthy powder keg of tobacco, gun smoke and cigar box shining through. The tannins are persistent yet soft.
Wine SpectatorA solid, juicy style, with bramble accents and earthy grip carrying dark currant and bitter plum fruit flavors along. Fresh savory notes add more energy to the finish. The fruit is unencumbered by toast. Drink now through 2025. 63,289 cases made.
