Hess Select Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
Fruit-forward blackberry and plum with hints of chocolate. On the finish some pepper, and hints of smoke and tar. Medium bodied with moderate, fairly smooth finish.
A wonderful nose but the taste is not what you expect. It is well rounded especially when compared to other C.S. wines. The tannins are moderate but very tolerable. A decent wine worth trying if you're looking for something new.
