91-Point Hoopes Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon // Set of 2
Spencer Hoopes loves wine and he also loves farming. What began as a passion for collecting wine and the land soon went beyond that. In 1983, Spencer planted his ten-acre vineyard in the Oakville AVA of Napa Valley. With the remarkable terroir, a little bit of luck and a lot of love, Hoopes Vineyard quickly found a home for the grapes in some of the better wineries in Napa Valley. Fifteen years later, he decided to take some of those grapes off the market and put them into bottles. Spencer Hoopes had always loved aromatic wines with balance and structure, and he wanted to make that kind of wine with the grapes from his own vineyard. And so he launched Hoopes Cabernet.
Hoopes wines are classic cabs that capture the pure relationship between grapegrower and winemaker with an old-world-meets-new-world style profile. The philosophy is simple: minimize after-harvest manipulation of the grape so that you can enjoy the most important ingredient in its true form. This is true grower-made wine.
The 2015 Hoopes Cabernet Sauvignon sports a lightly steeped core of red and black currant flavors, with flashes of sassafras, red licorice and black tea giving this a seductive bent on the fleshy finish. 91 Points, Wine Spectator
“Made with the same care and thoughtfulness of our single vineyard series, the Hoopes Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of fruit from a rich variety of sites. The synthesis of these vineyards, which represent the complex tapestry of Napa terroir, results in sublime balance, intense aromas and luscious textures that bring the diverse valley into harmony in a glass. Born out of curiosity, this Cabernet Sauvignon has matured into a stunning wine, which over delivers in intensity and richness. We are proud of this beautiful example of what the Napa Valley can do.” - Second Generation Proprietor, Lindsay Hoopes
“The notoriously minuscule yields in 2015 brought one of the earliest harvests on record in the Napa Valley. This vintage is marked by exuberant fruit and ripe lush tannins. In fact, we aged our 2015 a bit longer in barrel to bring the exuberant fruit into balance and with the lush tannins and broaden the midpalate and overall mouthfeel. In the glass, warm enveloping aromas of beeswax, powdery milk chocolate and ripe red cherries are layered with dark plum and baking spices. Fruit forward with a smooth attack, flavors of strawberry jam yield to a mouthwatering and seamless mouth with a huge amount of length full of red fruit, powdery oak, creamy milk chocolate and pleasing tension.” - Winemakers, Anne Vawter & Jennifer Rue
