Hess Cabernet Sauvignon Allomi 2013

Hess Cabernet Sauvignon Allomi 2013

Sku: 027254

The combination of a long, warm growing season and well-drained soils creates optimal ripening conditions, which make the Allomi Vineyard an ideal location for Cabernet Sauvignon. The 210-acre vineyard is composed of 35 unique blocks with six different clones. By selecting the best blocks each vintage, our winemaker produces a distinctive wine notable for its depth and complexity. This wine expresses a lush, firm texture, with good acidity, firm tannins and distinctive fruit forward flavors.

2009: 86 Points - Steve Heimoff, Wine Enthusiast: "Properly varietal, dry and smoothly tannic, this has a ripe, rich blackberry-jam flavor, with a healthy overlay of sweet, smoky oak. It’s a fine wine for drinking now."

Wine maker notes
This wine is dark fruit driven and begins with aromas of boysenberries, black cherries, vanilla and sage. Ripe flavors of blackberry mix with hints of cedar and graphite, and a slight note of toasty oak. A rich mouth feel gives way to smooth tannins, leading to a lingering finish. Accessible now, this wine should continue to age gracefully for 8 to 10 years.

The 2008 vintage was notable for a warm spring, leading to an early bud break. In mid- April a cold snap brought a deep frost that resulted in some crop reduction. With smaller yields and lower vine growth overall, the remaining clusters saw nearly perfect ripening conditions, resulting in a high quality vintage.

Earthy flavors enhance the fruit flavors in this wine, especially with foods such as herb roasted chicken, grilled pork, caramelized onions, eggplant, sautéed greens, roasted potatoes or vegetables and aged jack and Gouda cheese.
