Juicy and filled with fruity flavors, with lots of blackberry, cherry and ripe currant flavors. The tannins are on the rugged side, with jagged edges, but this is a pretty nice sip.

Fruit forward with ripe black cherry and spicy hints of mint and bay leaves. Aged for only about 12 months in 25% new French oak, the wine is free to express purity of fruit without becoming overladen with the vanilla so typical of many California Cabernets.

The smoky, bacon-like scent of oak dominates this wine for now. The structure is soft, the texture fat. It finishes warm, for braised beef.

Tasty, with an appealing structure and balanced acidity and tannins, plus soft black cherry fruit marked by nice spicy oak. Drink now through 2008.

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.

Muscular, with characteristic cassis, cherry-chocolate and spicebox notes. A consistent show-stopper, well-suited to a variety of red meat dishes.

Generous black currant flavors are the main draw, the structure soft and easy, lasting on fruit. Ready to pour with grilled lamb.
