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.
The 2014 Amici Cellars Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a complex and elegant wine showcasing the hallmarks of the famed valley-floor vineyard in the Oakville appellation. Opaque purple in color, this wine presents ripe cherry and cassis fruits, pipe tobacco, and sweet exotic spice notes. Precisely balanced on the palate, giving freshness and vibrancy to the ripe fruit flavors, it is silken in texture but tightly woven with a long, rich finish.
