Purlieu Cabernet Missouri Hopper Vineyard

The Dominus owned Ulysses property is  
from the Hopper Vineyard too! Great neighbors!
2018 Purlieu Cabernet Missouri Hopper Vineyard...$179.98

Loads of blackcurrants, smoked tobacco, gravelly earth, espresso, and chocolate notes emerge from the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Vineyard, a Graves-look alike that offers full-bodied richness, ripe, polished tannins, a dense, rich mid-palate, and a blockbuster of a finish. Reminding me of a great vintage from Smith Haut Lafitte, it can be drunk today or cellared for 20 years or more.
Rated 97/100 Jeb Dunnuck
