Hoopes Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Oakville|
A bit stolid in style, offering a core of currant, fig and blackberry fruit flavors that are well-steeped and layered with singed cedar and tobacco leaf notes and savory detail. Solid, if shy on charm. Drink now through 2027.
Sanguine and crisp in cranberry, currant and violet aromas, this wine is bright, expansive and integrated in oak, with accents of cedar and graphite. The full-bodied ripeness holds its own.
A step up, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville comes in a big, oversized bottle and is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that was raised in 45% new French oak. Plums, incense, cedar and spice all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, ripe, frontend loaded 2014 that has a charming, endearing style ideal for drinking over the coming 10-15 years.
