Hess Cabernet Sauvignon "Allomi" 2004 wine review by (PB)
I purchased this bottle on a trip this summer to Minneapolis. I had never seen this label and since Hess produces solid wines at all levels, I packed it and brought it home.
It has a hefty black cherry hue with rich cherry bouquet and black berry nose with a touch of gentle spice that is tantalizing.
The palate is bold with dark berry and cedar blasts with leather notes. This is a big wine out of the gate and doesn't benefit much from breathing though licorice does emerge. It is tasty and solid and finishes with a lingering berry compote. I paid $22 for it. Raise a glass.
