This chased the Chappellet, which was was a tough act to follow, But this Hess went toe-to-toe. And while it fell a shade short, at $23 per, it’s a winner. It presents superbly, and if you close your eyes, it’s tough to discern the difference. The Chappellet is slightly more extracted and dense, but beyond that, honors even. This is a case purchase. I’m going back to the well!

Super smooth. Great with dinner but also by itself.

Big and jammy, with a strong acid and study tannin on the finish. Despite having all of the elements right, the balance is off because it’s almost overwhelmingly sweet up front, then moves into a finish where the acid and tannin spike out.

Great tannins with intense, complex flavors of black cherry, raspberry, blackberry, plum with a touch of spicy oak.
