2016 Hoopes Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, California
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.
