This flashy, richly textured, round wine ends with a boatload of sweet, fleshy, black cherries and cocoa powder.
It's the one to drink whilst you're waiting for the senior one to mature. The wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and completely derived from the Missouri Hopper Vineyard. This wine was one of the first to be designated 'Missouri Hopper' with the 2008 vintage.
Deep ruby-red. Aromatic nose combines blackberry, cassis, licorice, violet, mint and minerals. Dense, juicy and sharply delineated, with a supple texture to its black cherry, cassis and bitter chocolate flavors. Large-scaled, harmonious, ripe wine with no rough edges. Still, I'd give this distinctly chocolatey wine a few years in the cellar to absorb some of its tongue-dusting tannins. Finishes with noteworthy persistence.
