    Winemaker Notes

    Yet another drought year, the smooth moderate temperatures of 2014 allowed for gentle development and concentration of flavor. The long hang time gave a beautiful ripeness with layers of fruit and sweet mature tannins. Rich warm aromas of cigar box, creamy vanilla and damp earth, gives way to a lush and generous mouth full of ripe plum and sweet cherries. Well-balanced oak supports a finish of milk chocolate and integrated tannins completing the graceful arc in the mouth.

    Blend: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 2% Petite Sirah

    Hoopes Vineyard, Napa Valley, California
    Spencer Hoopes loves wine and he also loves farming. What began as a passion for collecting wine and the land soon went beyond that. In 1983 Spencer planted his ten acre vineyard in the Oakville AVA of Napa Valley. With the remarkable terroir, a little bit of luck and a lot of love, they quickly found a home for the grapes in some of the better wineries in Napa Valley.

    Fifteen years later, Spencer decided to take some of those grapes off the market and put them into bottles with his name on the label. Spencer Hoopes had always loved aromatic wines with balance and structure, and he wanted to make that kind of wine with the grapes from his own vineyard. And so he launched Hoopes Cabernet.

    Hoopes wines are classic Cabernets that capture the pure relationship between grapegrower and winemaker with an old-world-meets-new-world style profile. The philosophy is simple: minimalize after-harvest manipulation of the grape so that you can enjoy the most important ingredient in its true form. This is true grower-made wine.

    California

    Red Wine

    A major force on the global playing field, California is the world’s fourth largest wine-producing region on the planet and the majority of land under vine here is devoted to red varieties—they cover nearly double the vineyard acreage compared to whites.

    While the state’s incredibly diverse terrain and microclimates allow for countless red wine styles, the one factor unifying all California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season, which leads to well-developed and fully ripened fruit.

    The most famous region today, of course, is the acclaimed Napa Valley, where Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Bordeaux Blends garner global attention and in some cases, "cult" status.

    Sonoma County, nestled between Napa Valley and the Pacific Ocean, claims great variability in geography and microclimates with vineyards climbing up mountains, reaching far into valleys and stretching along some the state’s most dramatic coastlines. Here world-class Pinot Noir is possible from Sonoma’s cooler sites while Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon do well in its warmer locations.

    The Central Coast, Lodi and the Sierra Foothills also excel in the production of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and remain active frontiers for newer varieties, namely Rhône and Spanish.

    The cool Anderson Valley in California’s North Coast region is a fantastic source of Pinot noir.

    Winemaking in California dates back to the 18th century when Spanish missionaries planted the first wine grapes. But the industry experienced its first boom with the Gold Rush in the last half of the 19th century when miners brought vines to the Sierra Foothills.
