Tasting Notes and Description
Tasting Notes For Hess Select Treo Winemaker's Blend 2017
Treo honors the next generation of the Hess family guiding The Hess Collection. Founder Donald Hess, joined by son-inlaws 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 several classic red varietals.
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 style in mind for our Treo blend. This year Petite Sirah made up the backbone, supported by a mix of Syrah, Zinfandel and Merlot with a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon. The result is a wine that is rich and full of flavor. The aromas call to mind a delicious barbeque with tamarind and sweet boysenberry lifting from the glass. On the mouth, bold, juicy red fruits lead to plush tannins and hints of grilled meats on the long, pleasant finish. The tannins are softer 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!
