Hess Select Treo Red Winemaker's Blend 2014
Each year we select flavorful lots for a winemaker’s favorite past-time - blending. The art of blending is part of the winemaker's craft, an exercise that often proves the sum of the parts is a delicious outcome. We have a style in mind for our Treo blend, and this year Petite Sirah made up the backbone of the blend joined the mix of Syrah, Zinfandel, Merlot and a hint of Malbec resulting in a wine that is rich and full of flavor.
The red fruits are ripe and bold, but not overly so. Tannins are purposefully softer and easy drinking - we craft this blend to ensure the wine is accessible when you decide to open the bottle. Maybe that’s why it’s become so popular.
