Food Pairings for The Hess Collection Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Allomi Vineyard
Tasted at UNLVino 4/10/10
This is my go to wine when I'm looking for a Cab in the $20-25 range. Nice concentrated flavors, mocha and chocolate flavors linger like you typically see from mountain cabs. I recommend decanting to let it open up.
External Reviews for The Hess Collection Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Allomi Vineyard
Big, plummy and ripe, with a wild berry and cedary oak base. This Napa Valley Cabernet makes a wonderful gift and is a catch-all red. The tannins are round and appealing with a pretty herbaceous hint on the finish. Great with savory red meat dishes, or for something new and adventurous, try it with a rich, dark chocolate cake.
A supple, rich and complex wine, with tasty mocha, currant and blackberry fruit that offers good concentration and depth, especially at this price. Drink now through 2010.
This is a good wine that can hold its own among some far more expensive bottlings. It's ripe in currants and cassis, and well-oaked, with elaborate tannins. The mouth impression is of elegance, intensity and balance.
Ripe and firm, with broad-shouldered blueberry, black currant, fresh herb and cedar flavors. Spicy, toasty oak and solid tannins frame solid, concentrated fruit on the lingering finish. Excellent value. Drink now through 2009.
Rich and full-bodied, this Hess has velvety cassis and plum over well-integrated tannins, with notes of minty smoke weaving throughout.
Taut and savory, with dill, plum and black cherry fruit that's firm and complex. Builds depth and density, and firming on the finish. Drink now through 2017.
Here's a gutsy, fruity Cabernet. It fills the mouth with juicy raspberry, cherry and blackberry flavors and hints of chocolate. Nothing subtle, just a dry, rich red wine for drinking now.
