Hess Select Cabernet Sauvignon 2000

California, United StatesThe blend is 83 cabernet, 9 merlot, 4 malbec and 4 petite syrah. Look for a peppery, cola and spicy resin, saddle leather nose with cassis jam aromas and some blackberry, vanilla and waxy barnyard notes. There is fine complexity here in a soft, round and supple red. Cherry cola, vanilla and spicy, cassis jam mark its flavours along with a peppery, earthy blackberry finish. Attractive and well balanced and made for current consumption.Tasted: 01 December 2003Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 29.95 Specialty Producer: The Hess Collection WineryDistributors: International Cellars Inc.
