Hoopes Vineyard Wine Tasting Napa Valley
Tasting Notes:
The notoriously minuscule yields in 2015 brought one of the earliest harvests on record in the Napa Valley. This vintage is marked by exuberant fruit and ripe lush tannins. In fact, we aged our 2015 a bit longer in barrel to bring the exuberant fruit into balance and with the lush tannins and broaden the mid-palate and overall mouthfeel. In the glass, warm enveloping aromas of beeswax, powdery milk chocolate and ripe red cherries are layered with dark plum and baking spices. Fruit forward with a smooth attack, flavors of strawberry jam yield to a mouthwatering and seamless mouth with a huge amount of length full of red fruit, powdery oak, creamy milk chocolate and pleasing tension.
