Hess Select Treo 2019
The art of blending is part of the winemaker's craft, an exercise that often proves the sum of the parts is a delicious outcome. Each year we select flavorful lots with a supple style in mind for our 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 - we 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!
An overall well-balanced and easy-sipping red with notes of crushed violets, black plum, black cherry, chocolate, vanilla, prune and a hint leather.
