Norm's Tasting Notes

2014 Hess Select North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon
When you are in the land of fresh seafood, it seems unlikely to be eating anything else. However a thick juicy steak grilled at the water's edge is as enticing as ever, so one might as well break out a decent Cab to go with that seaside Slab!
The 2014 Hess Select opens with a fragrant bouquet of berries and cherries with a touch of cedar shavings. The flavors swirl in the glass, with an abundance of cherries and red raspberries, backed by a little plum and a touch of vanilla. The tannins are sturdy yet smooth with a lingering aftertaste. The alcohol content is 13.8%, and Norm's score is 88.
This Cab form Napa and Lake Counties is a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, and a slew of other grapes including Petite Sirah and Malbec, and is a great companion for a good slab of beef.
price : $14- $18
