Fruity nose, with a bit of rose on the nose as well. Tastes earthy, tannic, but a very dry, uninteresting finish. A little spice on the finish as well.
A little bit of beef jerky on the nose, some red fruit, leather and clove. Molasses and tar flavors. A very interesting wine.
A beautiful deep ruby color with a nose full of deep blackberry and rose-infused aromas. Sophistication is the name of the game here, with some serious tannins and solid leather notes. A perfect companion to any red meat dish.
Sweet with a little bit of dryness. Very soft finish. A bit spicy, tastes of concentrated fruit. I imagine it would be great with a cheesy pasta dish.
Plums, cherries, slightly medicinal nose. Bit of a spicy, hot finish. I think I'd enjoy this more with some food that would help balance/mitigate some of the spice.
Deep smokey caramel nose. Very heavy and smokey body with a hint of oak. The finish was very quiet with a bit of spice.
Cherry fruit with hints of rose on the nose. I love the way the fruit and earthiness come through on the palate.
External Reviews for Hess Select Cabernet Sauvignon
Polished and ripe, this softly tannic wine shows ripe black currant, cherry and smoky oak flavors. It has just enough acidity to make it lively.
Generous black currant flavors are the main draw, the structure soft and easy, lasting on fruit. Ready to pour with grilled lamb.
A rustic style, with mint and herbal notes followed by black currant and oak flavors. Drink now through 2005.
Muscular, with characteristic cassis, cherry-chocolate and spicebox notes. A consistent show-stopper, well-suited to a variety of red meat dishes.
A very nice, elegant and clean Cab that shows plenty of coastal climate balance. Fully dry, it has oak-accented flavors of blackberries, currants, mocha and spice. Good buy at this fair price.
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 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.
