The Hess Collection Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of black cherry fruit and caramel on the nose. Concentrated fruit flavors dominate, with ripe fleshy plum, cherry, spice and a hint of dusty oak, ending with a soft, graceful finish.

Luscious aromas full of blackberry jam. Warm flavors, good, drying tannins add some structure. Juicy, medium to full bodied and clean with a hint of sweetness amid the dark ripe fruit.

White pepper and cherry notes with a little cinammon on the nose. Mineral with a crisp attack. Sour cherry and white pepper in the mid-palate with a black licorice finish. Solid tannins on the finish of leather and cedar.

This is just a good solid Cab. Nothing offends. Nice complexity, mouthfeel and finish. Well rounded wine.
