Winemaker David Guffy crafted the Hess Select Cabernet Sauvignon withnotable richness, intensity and varietal character, showing jammy dark fruitaromas with cedary barrel notes and a touch of spice. A soft entry, with ripe plumand raspberry in the forefront, is supported by background flavors of tobacco andcaramel, which add complexity to this imminently drinkable wine.
