Hoopes Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2015
Winemaker Notes Yet another drought year, the smooth moderate temperatures of 2014 allowed for gentle development and concentration of flavor. The long hang time gave a beautiful ripeness with layers of fruit and sweet mature tannins. Rich warm aromas of cigar box, creamy vanilla and damp earth, gives way to a lush and generous mouth full of ripe plum and sweet cherries. Well-balanced oak supports a finish of milk chocolate and integrated tannins completing the graceful arc in the mouth.
Blend: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 2% Petite Sirah
