Missouri Hopper 2011
About This Wine
Color: deep dark black ink with strawberry red on the rim
On the nose: explosion of grenadine, flower-like potpourri, vanilla and cherry, lingering on chocolate and bacon
On the palate: balanced entrance evolving on wild strawberries, cherry and blueberries with cassis and blood orange, lingering on violet and roses
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
"Formerly Vineyard "X", Missouri Hopper was a portion of the historic Vine Hill Ranch located north of the town of Yountville in the Oakville AVA in the Napa Valley. The vineyard was replanted after the phylloxera infestation to multiple clones of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. 45 acres are planted. "
