Hoopes 2012 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon
“The 2012 Hoopes Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon is a quintessential Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon. The vineyard, which sits on the valley floor in the nutrient rich flood zone of the Napa River, is comprised of 30-year-old vines and time-tested cabernet clones that provide fruit -forward, but structured, wines year after year. This wine is elegant and feminine, but bold. We have been growing grapes in this vineyard since the early 1980’s, and have been making wine from these vines since 1999. 2012 proved to be a bountiful and luscious vintage. I hope you will enjoy this new vintage of Hoopes Family Wines.”
- Second Generation Proprietor, Lindsay Hoopes
tasting notes
“Our 2012 Oakville Cabernet is an exciting wine for me, personally. Oakville is the heart and soul of the Napa Valley and my favorite playground for winemaking. The Hoopes Vineyard site is classic Oakville. Our 2012 offering is a rich, deep wine. It is juicy, with layers of dark cassis, blackberry and cherry as well as elements of cola, baking spices, leather and graphite. Although our wine has been called “big” in the past, this description matches this vintage to a ‘T.’ I love how this wine opens up and pops in the mouth with complexity on the nose, but freshness on the palate. This wine follows through to a lovely finish, with supple tannins. - Winemaker, Anne Vawter
about the winery
Hoopes Vineyard is located in the southernmost part of Oakville, where Yount Mill Road divides the Oakville and Yountville sub-appellations of Napa Valley. The vineyard grows vigorously. Nestled against a hill, and sitting firmly in the flood zone of the Napa River, Hoopes Vineyard has uniquely diverse and fertile alluvial soils despite the small 10-acre size. Farmed and picked by hand, the unique Hoopes fruit receives the highest attention throughout the entire grapegrowing process. The microclimate is very cool in the evening and mostly moderate heat throughout the day. The vineyard produces some of the best cabernet in the valley due to the unique site, clone, and soil combination.
