Hess Allomi Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2021
|California, Napa Valley
On the nose, our Allomi Cabernet offers enticing aromas of currant, blackberry and elegant expressions of vanilla. These aromas are complemented by layered flavors of juicy balanced fruit, most notably black and red cherry and raspberry. Plush, well-integrated tannins provide a round, delicious mouthfeel, and lead to elements of cocoa powder supported by a subtle oak spice, adding to the personality of the wine and reminding us why this is one of our most popular Napa offerings.
Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petite Sirah, 2% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec
Boysenberry and açaí berry fruit gives this a slightly exotic profile, but it's finely stitched with apple wood, sassafras and singed anise notes to keep it honest. The polished finish lets a chaparral note chime through the flashy fruit. This should have fans for sure. Drink now through 2036. 66,186 cases made.
This well-balanced, harmonious wine braces tasty dark plum, black currant and cedar flavors with moderate tannins and a good sense of freshness. Almost-sweet notes of milk chocolate, vanilla and cedar meld nicely with the ripe, delicious fruits.
