HESS SELECT TREO
Treo honors the next generation of the Hess family guiding
The Hess Collection. Founder Donald Hess, joined by son-inlaws
Timothy Persson and Christoph Ehrbar, form a trio building
on the values and vision of the past while leading the way to a
bright and innovative future. From our historic home on Mount
Veeder, the skill of our winemakers is seen each vintage in this
artful blend of several classic red varietals.
This blend of Merlot, Syrah and Petite Sirah has aromas of wild cherry,
plum, vanilla, wild berry and black currant jam. It enters the palate with
juicy flavors of cranberry, pomegranate and black cherry, while the finish is
long and soft.
The 2010 vintage will be remembered for its long, cool growing season and the
absence of excessive heat events, which allowed for ripe flavors to develop on the
vine without excessive sugar accumulation. The result is an elegant balance of fruit
flavors and acidity with lower alcohol.
Grilled meats, such as flank steak, or a hamburger with blue cheese. Grilled salmon.
Roasted or grilled mushrooms, onions and peppers. Cured meats and aged cheeses
like a gouda or dry jack.

California produces the majority of wine made in the United States. Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel and Pinot Noir dominate the wine production in California, but many other varietials thrive in the California climate.
