Hoopes Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville 2003

Member Review by JVM:

Bought this one as part of a closeout deal at my local wine shop. So part of the appeal for this wine was the bargain price I paid for an outstanding bottle of cabernet. I served this wine with zinfandel poached pear salad (pear slices, walnuts, goat cheese over arugula), NY strip steaks, roasted golden and red beets, sauteed beet greens. The wine was outstanding. The texture was very smooth and weighty.....very lush. The flavors were of ripe berries dusted with fresh cracked black pepper......with a vanilla bean loooong lingering finish. I liked this one so much, I ordered a half case of the 2005 and 2006 vintage directly from the vineyard.
