2010 Hoopes Vineyard Oakville Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon hints of well-worn leather from a favorite old chair in the study. Quiet whispers of eucalyptus and green pepper with bright lavender on a lingering, supple finish. The 2010 vintage was aged for 32 months in 100% French Oak, 70% new. A delicious, well-balanced wine! 14.9% ABV. SRP $65
We paired it with grain-fed Texas Ribeye – still some of the best beef in the U.S. topped with a mushroom Cabernet reduction. We added mustard greens topped with caramelized onions, fresh roasted beets and goat cheese, and fresh-baked sourdough.
