The Hess Collection Winery Allomi Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014, California

My Rating 88 Points.

Price $29.

Time for my Friday’s Cabernet fix.
This week it’s a nice one from Napa Valley.

Dark ruby in color with a wide purplish rim.

Nose of cherries, blueberries, oak, vanilla, licorice, earth, spices, peppercorn, leather, smoke, chocolates and mocha.

Medium to full bodied with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, currants, cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, earth, spices, chocolates, mocha, peppercorn, leather and smoke.

Long finish with firm tannins and tangy cranberries.

This Napa Cabernet is very enjoyable. Balanced with nice complexity. Drinking nicely now, but will be better in a year or two.

This teeth staining red wine is enjoyable by itself or with food like BBQ Meats.

Needs an hour or so, to open up properly.

14.8% alcohol by volume.
