Another excellent wine from Hess. Easy to drink. Black fruit with definite notes of black pepper.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

A fine Zinfandel, rich and briary, with wild forest flavors of black and blue berries. Asian spices, tangerine zest and smoky sandalwood. Full-bodied and dry, itrsquo;s nice now and for the next few years.

Herersquo;s a deeply flavored, lusty young Zin that really shows off the varietyrsquo;s briary personality, even though it hails from three different countries. Very rich in blackberries, mulberries and currants, itrsquo;s enormously spicy. Thoroughly enjoyable with barbecue and Mexican fare, like beef tacos.

This is a brand from Hess Collection that specializes in Zinfandel. Crafted by Hessrsquo; talented winemaker, Randle Johnson, itrsquo;s quite a good Zin, classic in itrsquo;s way, briary and brambly and spicy. Drinks deep and long in wild berry, pepper, licorice, Dr. Pepper and smoky flavors, and will be great with a steak.

Juicy and lively, with spicy cinnamon and raspberry aromas as well as crisp cherry, anise and loam flavors. Drink now through 2014.

From the Hess family of wines, a Zinfandel with fruit selected from three of the great Zinfandel appellations; Napa, Mendocino,and Amador. Jammy raspberry fruit and exotic spice, with rich plum, cola, and vanilla elements from barrel aging. Includes a dash of Petite Sirah.

The perfect wine for your next barbeque or pasta party. Raspberry, pepper and just the right amount of spice.

This is a new brand from Hess, and a very good wine. The winemaker calls it a field blend, meaning it may or may not be Zinfandel. It doesnrsquo;t taste entirely like Zin. There are blueberries and cherries in there along with the brambly, peppery stuff. The wine is claret-style, meaning itrsquo;s balanced and harmonious despite 15.5% alcohol.
