Hooker Wines

Unlike monolithic brick and mortar operations, Hooker Wines are the product of a virtual winery that produces vintage blends from the finest California appellations available on the market today. Hooker Wines' 106 acre estate is nestled in its own private valley, located about five miles northwest of Calistoga in Napa Valley. The 20 acre vineyard is currently producing ultra premium Syrah, and next year's harvest will also include Viognier and Cabernet Franc. Several acres of Zinfandel are also planned for premium vineyard designate Zinfandels. But our vineyard is just a small part of the Hooker Winery. The operation itself is actually a virtual winery located on the open market wherever California's finest appellations are available. With the exception of Hooker's Home Pitch Syrah, the various wines blended for the Hooker brand are personally reviewed for superior quality and painstakingly selected for balance and synergy. In short, the Hooker Winery invests time, energy and expertise Read more »

  • Hooker Old Boys Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Dusty and chalky red fruit aromas of mostly cherry and raspberry. This carries a very vibrant topnote of bright acidity and loads of red fruit character, with dried notes of tart cranberry and raspberry, firm lengthy tannins and big acidity. This is a bold, high acid wine that will continue to soften with a few more years in the bottle. Read More

  • Hooker Chardonnay Breakaway 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Very lightly scented with Asian pear and apple fruit on the nose, along with some face cream and a low nuttiness. This has a pronounced acidic spine and bright citrus flavors early on that are joined by notes of steel and seashells. The minerality is certainly intriguing, but the acid is high even for me. Apple fruit emerges on the mid-palate. F... Read More

  • One of the top questions I get at Snooth is, "Where are the values?" It’s not surprising that folks are looking for deals, and they usually are interested in their favorite wines, so it’s not surprising that Cabernet Sauvignon values are the most frequent request. With our Global Tasting initiative (GTI) program geared up once again I thought t... Read More

  • Hooker Old Boys Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Peppery earthy nose supported by a plum backbone. Where's the fruit? In the mouth it exhibits nice spice, tea flavors, and big tannins and a peppery finish but to me there's a huge gap where the fruit should be. Read More

  • Hooker Old Boys Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Tootsie roll aromas and a mellow palate of blackberries, ripe cherries and tight acidity. At the price point I might look elsewhere, but it's not a bad wine, the high point being the finish. Read More
