Missouri Hopper Vineyard has become synonymous with world-class wine. This historic heritage vineyard is found in Oakville and is owned by Andy Beckstoffer who has carved his reputation upon his appreciation for meticulous farming and movement toward sustainability. This special vineyard is located on the western aluvial fan just north of the town of Yountville. The soil type is moderately deep alluvial silty clay loam. The vine’s roots struggle to find water causing them to burrow deep into the earth producing grapes with layered, concentrated, and balanced flavors. Oakville has a long-standing reputation for producing cellar-worthy wines of incredible character.
Brilliantly aromatic, showing a softer, prettier side of the typically powerful Oakville palate. Ripe aromatics of blackberry and raspberry pie and cassis are lifted with fresh floral notes, pekoe tea and cinnamon, cardamom, cedar, and espresso. The palate is full of fresh fruit flavors, bramble berries, strawberry, cherry, and plum with bright acidity and a lively tannic structure.
