WINEMAKER’S NOTES
“Our 2012 Oakville Cabernet is an exciting wine for me, personally. Oakville is the heart and soul of the Napa Valley and my favorite playground for winemaking. The Hoopes Vineyard site is classic Oakville. Our 2012 offering is a rich, deep wine. It is juicy, with layers of dark cassis, blackberry and cherry as well as elements of cola, baking spices, leather and graphite. Although our wine has been called “big” in the past, this description matches this vintage to a ‘T.’ I love how this wine opens up and pops in the mouth with complexity on the nose, but freshness on the palate. This wine follows through to a lovely finish, with supple tannins.
– Winemaker, Anne Vawter
