This beautiful wine awakens in phases through four hours and more. At uncorking, the nose resonates with waves of earth, herbs, vegetables, flowers and fruits, including intermittently strong notes of black cherry, raspberry, eucalyptus, beets, rhubarb, sweet cigar box and clay. Over several hours, chocolate is added to the medley, along with hints of caramel, plum and faint petroleum, all helping to balance the vegetal influences. The palate launches tight and unbalanced in favor of vegetal flavors without much spread. Beets and rhubarb dominate the vegetal array. At two hours, the wine begins to integrate, developing a smooth silky mouthfeel supported by firm tannins that create a promising scaffolding for continued evolution. From three hours, a pleasant, slightly sour acidity frames pops of black cherry, deep blackberry, faint plum, and sweet tobacco, flowing in delicious counterpoint to a pleasant fugue of pepper and spice that comes and goes on the finish. At four hours, pepper and spice increase on the top, and the mouthfeel turns to textured velvet on the front, as the wine becomes a dryer version of itself, with great complexity spreading across the top and back of the palate during the wonderfully long finish. Dark fruits, beets and rhubarb sustain throughout, but as integration occurs, they take their place nicely in the harmonies of flavors that evolve in this truly superb wine. The wine shows best between three and five hours.

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.

The vineyard is east west facing and is in the southern most part of the Oakville Appellation. Nestled up against a hill north of Yountville in the center part of the valley, the vineyard grows very vigorously.

Graceful and decadent, this wine is made by longtime growers now with their own brand. Itrsquo;s ripe and gooey in black currant, cassis and chocolate, and beautifully structured, with fine, crisp acids and dusty tannins. As good as it is now, it should hold and improve for several years.

Sleek and well-structured, with a tasty beam of currant and cherry-laced fruit supported by cedary oak and finishing with ripe, integrated tannins. Best from 2006 through 2012.

<p>This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the eight-acre Hoopes family vineyard in Napa Valley. Rich and lively, with soft tannins.</p>
