2019 The Hess Collection 'Hess Select' Treo Winemaker's Blend, California, USA (750ml)
The art of blending is part of the winemaker's craft, an exercise that oftenproves the sum of the parts is a delicious outcome. Each year winey winery select flavorful lots with a supple style in mind for the Treo blend. This year Petite Sirah made up the backbone, flanked by a mix of Zinfandel, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvginon, with a touch of Merlot and Malbec. The result is a wine that is rich and full of flavor. The aromas beckon for a delicious barbeque, with notes of bing cherry and pomegranate lifting from the glass. On the mouth, bold, dark bramble fruit flavors lead to plush notes of blueberry on the long, pleasant finish. The tannins are soft and easy drinking - they craft this blend to ensure the wine is accessible when you decide to open the bottle. Maybe that’s why it’s become so popular. Enjoy!
