Hess Select Treo 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
The Hess Select Treo is a blend of several red varietals sourced from select vineyards in Northern California that produce flavorful ripe fruit, juicy rounds flavors, agreeable acids and balanced tannins meant for easy drinking. This year Petite Sirah made up the backbone, supported by a mix of Syrah, Zinfandel and Merlot with a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon. The result is a wine that is rich and full of flavor. The aromas call to mind a delicious barbeque with tamarind and sweet boysenberry lifting from the glass. On the mouth, bold, juicy red fruits lead to plush tannins and hints of grilled meats on the long, pleasant finish. The tannins are softer and easy drinking - we craft this blend to ensure the wine is accessible when you decide to open the bottle.
Generous jammy, grapey aromas and flavors fill out the full body of this broad-textured wine. It's saturated with ripe plum, dried fig and blackberry, and has a soft mouthfeel due to very light tannins and low acidity.
