About this product
A big, rich, Cabernet from dog-lover Spencer Hoopes made from lots not used in his estate wines - the odds and ends that make up this "Mutt!" Nothing second rate about it in 2014, though, with 100% Napa Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Syrah getting 18 months in new and second use French oak. Opens with a big burst of nicely oaked dark currant and black cherry fruit and then delivers bold flavors of crushed summer berries, blackcurrant, chocolate and spice. Finishes with a steak or burger-friendly pop of light tannin and leaves spicy currant and berry fruit lingering nicely.
