Winemaker Notes

This wine's dense, dark garnet hue beckons you to dive deep into the nose as it opens with hints of Peruvian peppercorn and pencil shavings. Upon taking time to breathe in the glass, notes of raspberry, graphite, and hot Earth are revealed. On the palate, the raspberry aromatic evolves first into bramble and secondarily into framboise liqeur, filling the mouth with its dense body. As the wine slowly recedes, a beautiful rose water essence is revealed, leaving one wanting more.
This wine pairs very well with a gourmet burger, eggplant Moussaka or a wild Ragu with Fettuccine and foraged mushrooms with shaved Reggiano Parmesan.

COMMENTARY: The 2016 Hoopla Cabernet Sauvignon is sturdy, yet smooth in the finish. TASTING NOTES: This wine brings black fruit and licorice to the fore making in a beautiful wine with a juicy, grilled ribeye. (Tasted: July 14, 2020, San Francisco, CA)

Hoopla Winery Image
Hoopla is fun, unique quality wine. It's the realization of a life long ambition for experienced wine producer Spencer Hoopes and his team. Not to have to worry about "what sells", but simply to have fun bucking trends and creating brave Napa wines that are unlike any other.

Covering the most vine acreage in the state compared to any other red wine variety, Cabernet Sauvignon produces as much wine in California as Merlot and Pinot Noir combined. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates, as well as the freedom of its winemakers, allow for an incredible range of wine styles from this single grape.

California’s most famous region—and especially for Cabernet Sauvignon—is the acclaimed Napa Valley. While Cabernet is successful throughout the world, rarely has it achieved such merit as it does from the Napa Valley. At this point the two are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other.

Napa’s closest neighbor, Sonoma County, does an impressive job keeping up with Napa’s fame and glory. Alexander Valley, Sonoma Mountain, Moon Mountain and Knights Valley contribute to the lot of some of California’s top-rated Cabernet Sauvignon.

Lake County in California’s North Coast has become a focus for some of Napa’s more respected growers. From the Central Coast come iconic examples of classic California Cabernet; Lodi and the Sierra Foothills are great budget-friendly sources of amicable Cabernets.
