Hess Select Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Mt. Veeder|
This complex and well-balanced wine seamlessly blends black fruits, oak spices and a beefy accent on a full body backed by moderate tannins. It feels velvety, almost silky, but has the structure to improve with age. Best from 2025
Shows a toasty overlay, with singed vanilla coating a core of blackberry, black cherry and boysenberry paste flavors. A tug of loam and a cedary frame emerge on the finish. Offers more oomph than purity, with the toasty edge asserting itself through the finish. Best from 2023 through 2034. 6,300 cases made.
