Hess Select Hess Tri Co Mendo Lake Napa Cabernet 2006

Member Review by vada:

This wine tastes four times more expensive than it costs. The first thing I noticed was the deep color that hints at the extracted flavor. It smells fruity and funky the way a cantaloupe tells you it's just right (no melon hints in the wine). On tongue, black cherry and loganberry start the melange while the mouth is coated with both furry fruit and silky tobacco. This is fun.

Ripe and forward in the modern cult style, with flavors of blackberry tart, black currants, milk chocolate and ripe mulberry, in addition to sweet, smoky oak. Sturdy mountain tannins provide structural bite, and should help the wine mature ... Wine Enthusiast. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2006 Hess Collection Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

Grand Circle Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 - Hess Collection: Grand Circle Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 - Rotwein von Hess Collection WineryDieser weiche, wunderbar harmonische Grand Circle Cabernet Sauvignon gedieh in einem Eckchen vom Napa Valley, an dem es etwas wärmer ist als anderswo. Regnerischen Tagen nimmt dieser Wein jeden Schrecken, er liefert uns sogar einen Grund, sich auf gräulich mieses Winterwetter zu freuen. Durch den Ausbau in offenen Edelstahlgärtanks gelangten weniger Gerbstoffe und mehr Geschmacksstoffe in den jungen Wein. Ganz deutlich finden wir Aromen von Pfeffer und Gewürznelken zusammen mit einem gerüttelt Maß an Blaubeeren.Weingut: Hess Collection WineryLand: USARegion: KalifornienRebsorte: Cabernet SauvignonInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,5 Vol.%Empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 - 18°C Rotwein > USA > Kalifornien
