Why can't the other Hoopes wine's be anything like this. The oak is present but doesn't dominate. Very rich blackberry/raspberry, chocolate, dusty, tobacco. Rich tannin structure and balancing acids make this quite delicious

Delicious Cab from the awesome 2013 vintage, a beautiful example of what Oakville terroir can produce in expert hands. Soft, feminine, elegant, notes of dark cherry, raspberry and cocoa powder with lingering tannins. Worth jumping through hoops for! ;)

Had this about a year ago for the first time, revisiting today. Herbal aromas up front. Silky palate with red and blue fruit flavors leading to a mouthwatering finish. I feel like a year in the bottle has benefitted this wine and it will probably continue to improve in coming years.

Good for the price but not fair when I tasted it with Diamond Creek and Chateau Gloria.

Big, meaty style. Powerful. Good earthy notes. Very sweet fruit, blackcurrant, vanilla, with a grippy finish. Will be interesting to see where this goes

2012 vintage, lots of dark fruit and terroir, drinking really well but should only get better with some age
