2018 Hess 'Allomi' Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 375mL Half-bottle
Winemaker Notes: The combination of steady heat and well-drained clay loam soils in our Allomi Vineyard allows fruit to ripen evenly, gaining welcomed complexity and layers of flavor. We consistently see beautiful yields from the Allomi Vineyard, and this vintage was no different. On the nose, this wine delivers delicious aromas of boysenberry, blackberry and elegant expressions of lavender alongside a touch of vanilla. Allomi Cabernet is concentrated upon entry with dense, but well-integrated tannin's that provide a round, plush mouthfeel. Layers of juicy black fruit, notably black cherry and black plum, lead to elements of espresso supported by a subtle oak spice that adds to the personality of the wine and reminds us why this is one of our most popular Napa offerings.
James Suckling - "A fruity cabernet with currant, black-cherry and berry aromas and flavors. Medium-to full-bodied with soft tannins and a juicy finish. Yummy now. Drink or hold."
Wine Spectator - "A polished, direct style, with warmed plum. and blackberry fruit laced with cocoa and tobacco notes. A rounded edge on the finish makes this accessible now, but there's enough for brief cellaring too."
Wilfred Wong - "The 2018 Hess Collection Allomi Cabernet Sauvignon drinks generously and tenderly. This wine sports aromas and flavors of black fruit, anise, and dust. Pair it with grilled cheeseburgers topped with minced shallots."
