Hess Select Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

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 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.
