Winemaker Notes

This 2014 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon presents with complex and evocative aromas of leather, white tobacco, fennel, anise and earthy cocoa with the freshness of ripe blackberry and coriander seeds. Warm vanilla, honeyed beeswax and plummy cherry compote deepen into a lovely tannin story at once firm and supple. A generous mouth with good activity and tension finishes with a lavender sappiness supported by a rich tactile element of ripe fruit and creamy oak.

D 93
Decanter
From the 10 acre estate vineyard in Oakville, cropped at quite low yields, this wine has a full aroma of black fruit and peppery spice. The palate is expansive and rich, with violet tinged cassis, menthol, fried herb, wood and peppery spice. There's a nice tar and liquorice and chocolate and coffee bean mid-palate leading into a long finish carried by a wave of raspberry acidity. Needs time. Drinking Window 2017 - 2027

James Suckling
Shows the brightness and energy of the 2014 vintage with blackberry, hints of rose petal and black tea character. Full body, polished tannins and a focused finish. Hand-crafted. Drink or hold.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Sanguine and crisp in cranberry, currant and violet aromas, this wine is bright, expansive and integrated in oak, with accents of cedar and graphite. The full-bodied ripeness holds its own.

Jeb Dunnuck
A step up, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville comes in a big, oversized bottle and is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that was raised in 45% new French oak. Plums, incense, cedar and spice all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, ripe, frontend loaded 2014 that has a charming, endearing style ideal for drinking over the coming 10-15 years.

Hoopes Vineyard, California

At Hoopes Family Vineyard and Winery, the love of wine and farming are priority number one. Family owned and operated, dedicated to crafting wines that seamlessly capture the relationship between grape-grower and winemaker. The wines marry old-world-farming and taste profiles with new-world fruit flavors and ripeness. Since 1999, the goal with the flagship Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon has been to capture the truest expression of the old-vine vineyard's terroir. Planted in 1983 by Spencer Hoopes, it was previously a fruit source for a number of famous estates until the winemaking began being done in house. When the second-generation Proprietor Lindsay Hoopes took the reins, she hired Heidi Barrett prodigy Anne Vawter as Winemaker. Anne broadened the scope to include very limited production Sauvignon Blanc, Rosé, Chardonnay, Syrah and Merlot, showcasing the diverse appellations of Napa Valley. Along with Dante’s Block, the Reserve Cabernet named after our beloved canine mascot, these boutique wines are only available direct from the winery.

Home to some of the most sought-after Cabernet Sauvignon in America, Napa Valley’s Oakville district stretches across the center of Napa's valley floor and foothills between the Vaca and Mayacamas Mountains. This AVA is home to the legendary To Kalon Vineyard and Martha's Vineyard, as well as many powerhouse wineries including Screaming Eagle, Silver Oak, Robert Mondavi, Opus One, Far Niente and Groth.

The climate is generally warm and agreeable, resulting in year after year of favorable vintages. Summer days see a gentle tug of war between warmer inland air and the cool air coming in from the San Pablo Bay, creating an ideal environment to grow red varieties. Oakville's diverse soils, namely ancient sea bedrock, clay and gravel, are well-drained, and perfect for high-caliber viticulture.

Cabernet here is often bottled varietally but is also popular in Bordeaux Blends. Oakville wines are known for their silky, sensual textures, structured tannins, dark and brooding fruit and lovely aromatics. These age-worthy and prestigious wines are favored by collectors throughout the world.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
