Hess Estate Cabernet 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Vintage: 2004 Wine Type: Red Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon Appellation: Mount Veeder, Napa Valley Alcohol %: 14.5 Tasting Notes: Aromas: cassis, molasses, milk chocolate, black berry, and black cherry followed by briary notes of sweet loganberry and oak-cedar. Palate: layered with the same fruit characters and dark chocolate with chewy tannins and a medium bodied mid palate that build through the finish. Great age worthy potential. Vineyard Notes: Grapes were harvested from Hess Collection read more... Veeder Hills vineyard at an altitude of 600 - 1,120 feet. Production Notes: 21 months in 55% new French oak. Winemaker Notes: Blend: 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc, 1% Merlot The 2004 vintage started with an early spring giving the vines a boost to start off their growing season. This strong start was followed by a warm, consistent weather pattern in summer that ended with several hot fast ripening periods. This short and sweet harvest produced a memorable 2004 vintage with low yield, high quality grapes characterized by ripeness and intensity.

Very full bodied flavor. Great aroma. But a little bitter

"Fruit forward aromas of black pepper and dark fruit follow into the palate with blackberry, milk chocolate and polished tannins to round out the classis Hess Select Cabernet profile." -Winery
