Hess Collection 2008 19 Block Cuvée Red (Mount Veeder)
This is essentially a Bordeaux blend, based on Cabernet, but the winery put in some Syrah. It's very delicious and forward in blackberry, blueberry and chocolate flavors. The tannins are as soft and sweet as Napa gets, making the wine drinkable now.
