Hess Allomi Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Out of stock

We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

The Allomi Vineyard is relatively young, and it has one thing that Cabernet Sauvignon surely loves: some heat, and a long, lingering growing season that allows fruit to ripen slowly on the vine, gaining complexity and layers of flavor. There's a hint of floral aromas on the nose, with vanilla, oak spice and even a touch of pepper. Full bodied red fruit flavors typical for Cabernet are joined by notes of currant and blackberry with moderate, well-integrated tannins with wonderful balance and a soft, round, almost lush mouthfeel. Distinctive accents from American oak complete the profile, surely one of Napa's great treasures from Pope Valley.

Food Pairing: 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.

Wine SpectatorSturdy and intense, with a tight core of licorice-scented blackberry, dusty earth, cedary oak and savory underbrush. This is sufficiently supple to drink or cellar short term. Drink now through 2028. 59,500 cases made.
