Hess Select Allomi Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
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. Theres 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 Napas great treasures from Pope Valley.

If ever a vintage might be described as textbook, this growing season would qualify. Budbreak, flowering and set proceeded without a hitch, and there were no heat events or early season crippling frost. Quite boring, actually, right through to Veraison, just as we like it. The result was an abundant harvest with fruit that brought smiles to winemakers and expected oohs and aahs from wine drinkers
