Purlieu Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Oakville|
The Missouri Hopper Vineyard in Oakville has been owned by the Beckstoffer family since 1996. It's namesake came much earlier in the 19th century when Charles Hopper gifted the property to his daughter, Missouri, who then planted a portion of the land under vine. It shines with rich heritage, history and produces exceptional, Napa Valley cabernet sauvignon and merlot. We have sourced from this location since 2014 and continue to make a rich, multi-dimensional wine that brings to light the exclusiveness of Napa Valley cabernet.
Inky purple-black in color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Missouri Hopper has intense cassis, blackberries and warm plums notions on the nose with a vast mélange of Chinese five spice, chargrill, cigar box, menthol and licorice suggestions. Full-bodied, rich, ripe and opulent, it has a solid frame of velvety tannins and well-played freshness, finishing long and earthy.
