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.

This wine is always in my cellar and it never disappoints. Nice wine that has a nice aroma of black cherries and is a great Tuesday wine

Notable richness, intensity and varietal character, showing jammy dark fruit aromas with cedary barrel notes and a touch of spice. A soft entry, with ripe plum and raspberry in the forefront, is supported by background flavors of tobacco and caramel, which add complexity to this imminently drinkable wine.

Fruit-forward aromas of black cherry and ripe boysenberry continue into the palate, where they are joined by cedar, currant and pepper. A supple, rich texture rounds out the classic Hess Select Cabernet profile.
