2005 Hess Allomi Vineyard
||Medium Red Wine
||Napa Valley, California
||.56g / 100ml
86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, 4% Merlot. The 2005 vintage will be best remembered as one of the latest and largest crop years in history. The spring rains and cool conditions held back budbreak and fruit set. The grapes slowly and evenly ripened over the summer months and into October. This resulted in nearly perfect clusters with no random dehydration, each grape intact and full of flavor.
A complex and approachable wine that pairs with moist fish, grilled meats, caramelized onions and wild mushrooms.
