2017 Hess Select Cabernet Sauvignon North Coast
Winemaker Notes:“Our Hess Select Cabernet features grapes from some of the best vineyards in Napa and Lake county. The wine showcases a ruby color with aromas red raspberry and dark cherry. Flavors of red raspberry, black cherry follow with spicy notes of currants, anise, cloves, cedar and a touch of vanilla. This soft, round, medium-bodied wine tastes like Cabernet should. Our Cabernet is perfect with an informal BBQ straight through to Saturday night.” -Dave Guffy
VINEYARD + PRODUCTION: Our grower partners in Lake County represent outstanding examples of wines from California’s North Coast. This unique growing region offers a relatively mild Mediterranean climate with predictable heating and cooling cycles. Rolling hillsides and benchlands offer prime vineyard sites producing flavorful fruit with layers of agreeable acids and balanced tannins.
FOOD + WINE PAIRING: Dishes incorporating sweet peppers, caramelized onions or roasted Portobello mushrooms, a hearty bacon burger with blue cheese, barbecued shrimp, and mild blue cheeses or cheddar cheese. All these dishes pair well with the Hess Select Cabernet.
79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petite Sirah, 7% Malbec, 5% Merlot, 1% Syrah
Wilfred Wong - "The 2017 Hess Select Cabernet Sauvignon is soft, smooth, and pleasing. This wine offers vivid black fruit aromas and flavors. Enjoy it with grilled lamb kababs."
