Tasting Notes and Description
Tasting Notes For Hess Select Treo Winemaker's Blend 2019
Treo honors the next generation of the Hess family guiding The Hess Collection. Founder Donald Hess, joined by sons-inlaw Timothy Persson and Christoph Ehrbar, form a trio building on the values and vision of the past while leading the way to a bright and innovative future. From our historic home on Mount Veeder, the skill of our winemakers is seen each vintage in this artful blend of classic California red varietals.
We have a style in mind for our Treo blend, and this year Petite Sirah made up the backbone of the blend joined the mix of Syrah, Zinfandel, Merlot and a hint of Malbec resulting in a wine that is rich and full of flavor.
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 Carignan. 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!
