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.
A gorgeous full nose of fresh blackberry, cherry and warm black olive washed with hints of vanilla bean emulate the younger vine blocks that constitute 60% of this wine. A sweet and sour palate promotes refreshing acidity, sweet dark cherry juice, iron and cassis. The 40% of older 30-year vines add savory herbs, cola nut, coco powder and baking spice that live long through a powdery and chewy finish.
