Hess (The Collection Allomi) Napa Valley 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, $29.99-$34.99, 90 points, appeared opaque maroon/ruby-red trending a more traditional crushed blackberries purple/red at the transparent rim.
Blueberry and black fruit aromas with sea-breezes, cedar, and cocoa smells were good.
Full-bodied, fair to good acidity, and supportive moderate tannin managed flavors reflective of the nose with hints of licorice and sweet tobacco.
Finished medium-long on the lingering palate of easy spice notes, plum, and a sweet-spot 14.4% alcohol.
