(From 2008 Vintage) On the nose, the 2008 displays aromas of bing cherry, all spice, and ripe black fruits. The palate delivers flavors of current, dark chocolate which are framed by firmly integrated tannis and linear acidity. The length of the finish exhibits the marriage of beautiful dark fruit and fine French oak. The 2008 Hoopes Family Cabernet marries balance and elegance with the core of a wine that will age for 20 years or more.
