Hess Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

This red from California is from the second flight at Snooth's Cabernet Blind Tasting last week.

Actually this is a blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Syrah and 4% Merlot and made from grapes from Mendocino, Lake County and Napa County (45%, 30%, 25%). Shows floral aromas of lilac, mineral, tar, and reminiscent of Robitussin cherry cough syrup in a slightly oxidized way. Flavors of raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, cedar, and hints of sawdust with a short to medium metallic finish, 13.5% alcohol and $12.99.
