Hess Allomi Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Shoe polish, bay leaf, small black fruits, oak, roasted herbs, thyme all are layered on the nose. This is smooth and rich but also hollow. There’s plenty of extract to work with but this is either closed or just remarkably lifeless with plenty of ripe fruit flavors that just sit on your tongue. The finish is drying and tannic, if very chocolaty and long. 84pts

This wine is balanced and bold. Very fruit forward with a hint of spice. Tried it for the first time in November, 2016 at Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouse and loved it.

Fairly oaky nose. Candy sweet on introduction—blackberry, big time. Some dark plum hints. Some earthiness. Very sedate tannin, although it does pop up on the rear palate. Quite a short finish. The candied fruit on entry discourages me from going back for more of this one.

This 2010 of Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, California is good. Deep ruby-red color with a mid-rim variation. Fruit notes of Black Currants and Bosyenberry with a hint of mocha, cinnamon and tobacco. It has a long finish on the palette with mid acidity. This wine has not peaked and will mature nicely over time (2018-2020). Best served chilled to 64 degrees, double decanted and served with a mid-rare bone-in lamb chop dish.

This wine is rich and earthy with an aroma of dark berries and sage and has a very nice mouth with gentle tannins leading to a nice finish. The winemaker’s notes say this wine can hold for 8 to 10 years.

Breaking News! Just Named a Top Value Napa Red by Wine Enthusiast Magazine! The 210-acre Allomi vineyard lies in the gently rolling hills of northeastern Napa Valley, where the combination of a typically long, warm growing season and well-drained soils create optimal ripening conditions for Cabernet Sauvignon. Sustainably farmed, in each vintage, winemakers evaluate the grapes and select only the finest components for the final cuvée. The 2012 vintage could easily be described as textbook. Budbreak, flowering and set proceeded without a hitch, and there were no heat events or early season crippling frost. The result was an abundant harvest with fruit that brought smiles to everyone’s faces. A blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petite Sirah and 2% Petit Verdot aged 18 months in 24% new American oak barrels. In was recently rated 94 points by Beverage Dynamics Magazine. They said "This single vineyard Cabernet from one of the Valley’s best known wineries is full of rich black and red fruit; dark ruby in the glass, with plenty of richness on the nose and palate; hints of spice and tannin provide backbone for the fruit to surround; the finish is well balanced, and quite lengthy." Dont' Miss It!

This interesting blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petite Sirah and 2% Petit Verdot works on many levels. Floral lavender and violet open the wine before a light, rounded touch of blackberry and leather hit the palate, followed by earthy cola spice. Well-priced and easy to enjoy, it puts good winemaking on display.

This is tempting, with seductive mocha, creamy oak and vanillin notes, bolstered by a tight, vibrant core of rich blackberry, currant and licorice. Firms up on the finish, where the flavors gain depth and nuance. The finish is a bit clipped. Drink now through 2028. 45,106 cases made.

A dark ruby-colored, fruity, soft, round, delicious, consumer friendly effort, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Allomi can be enjoyed over the next 4–5 years.

Aromen: Reife Pflaumen, Lakritze, Zedernholz, Korinthen und Toast. Gaumen: Zuerst schwarze Kirschen, gefolgt von fleischigen Pflaumen. Gut strukturierter Cabernet: tief, konzentriert, mit reifen Gerbstoffen, nachhaltig. Ein Napa Valley Klassiker!
