Impress Dad with this exclusive selection of Small Block Series wines. Featuring two distinctive Mount Veeder estate Small Block Series wines and our limited Small Block Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon.
The gift set includes 1 bottle each of:
2012 Hess Small Block Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Intense aromas of anise, violets, brooding black fruit and toasty cedar with chocolate mocha are joined by sweet black fruits on the mid-palate, finely grained tannins and a lingering, oh so long finish.
2012 Hess Small Block Series Auction Lot 11, Distinctive aromas and flavors of mountain blackberries, dark cherry and creamy milk chocolate stand well alongside some oak spice and black currant. Round, full tannins suggest a wine that will age well, appropriate, we think, for an auction wine.
2013 Hess Small Block Series Malbec, Big, really big aromas of chocolate, blueberry and rich Aussie black licorice (we like the Wiley Wallaby brand) open, touched up by rich vanilla bean. Supple and sensuous, the tannins are plush and the wine lingers, with flavors of blackberries and dark fruits, a touch of jam and peppery spice.
