2017 Hoopes Vineyard Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon, California, USA (750ml)
The 2017 Napa Cab has this incredible juicy acidity that complements the fine-grained tannins through the finish. Aromas of Black Licorice, Spearmint, and Eucalyptus welcome you to the glass. As the wine continues to open, you will gather expressions of plum, juicy blueberries, and freshly brewed coffee. This wine introduces itself with notes of Root Beer, Vanilla Bean and the earthiness of Forest Floor. The mid-palate gains impact and density leading you to a savory and fresh finish of coffee, leather, and porcini mushrooms. Already enjoyable now, this wine will carry on in its development for the next 15 years.
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot. Deep garnet-purple colored, it drifts effortlessly out of the glass with black fruit preserves scents of blackberry jam and blackcurrant jelly plus hints of fruitcake and potpourri. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is chock-full of ripe, juicy black fruit flavors with loads of minty sparks and a plush texture, finishing with a lively lift.
