- HESS - Cabernet - This is a great tasting wine that is also affordable... between $10-15... According to the winemaker.. "Earthy flavors enhance the fruit flavors in this wine, especially with foods such as herb roasted chicken, grilled pork, caramelized onions, eggplant, sautéed greens, roasted potatoes or vegetables and aged jack and Gouda cheese."
Winemaker goes on to say.. ".... full-bodied wine with rich flavors of blackberry and currant paste. Aging in American oak barrels for 16.5 months (25% new) brings a toasty nose of vanilla and nutmeg. "
