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! ;)

Delicious and flavorful Napa cab with a surprisingly soft mouthfeel. Iā€™m picking up notes of savory olive and eucalyptus on the nose, tasting even a bit of dried blueberry.

10++++ Full-bodied but oh so smooth from the first taste. The smell is amazing. Hints of vanilla perhaps? Beautiful dark red on color
Pairs well with lamb.

Sumptuous and quite full with loads of jammy, deep, dark fruits; like taking a bite out of a juicy plum. The nose reminded me of the fullness and complexity of Caymus Special Selection but on the palate it, of course, was not in the same boat. Definitely more sweet and less complex with little-to-no earth and dust. Delicious, though, regardless of what it made me think of.
