Missouri Hopper, one of Napa’s oldest vineyards, consists of 45 contiguous acres on the famed Oakville Bench in the Napa Valley. Purchased by Charles Hopper and given to his daughter Missouri in 1877, today Missouri Hopper is owned by the Beckstoffer family, and the fruit from this vineyard is some of the most sought after in the Napa Valley. Wines from the Missouri Hopper Vineyard consistently display the complex profile of power with refinement that is a hallmark of the celebrated Oakville Bench appellation
Deep ruby-purple color, this wine presents rich, inviting aromas of kirsch, black currant, and damson plum with complex notes of mocha, sweet tobacco, and a subtle hint of five-spice. The palate is ripe, with firm and textured tannins, lush fruit, and showing a graceful balance of muscularity and elegance on its long finish that is quintessentially Oakville.
