Hoopla The Mutt

Description

This generous Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep, inky purple colour, with aromas of rich juicy blackberry, violet, and anise. This leads to a concentrated palate of deep plum and pomegranate notes and just the right lick of toasted oak. This structured and smooth red finishes with hints of cola, cassis, black cherry and vanilla, with well integrated velvety tannins..

Extra Notes

The Estate Description sums them up: “The Mutt” was inspired by Maya and Sophie, our beloved rescue dogs. “The Mutt,” like Maya and Sophie, is playful, unique and interesting. The grapes used are the “seconds”—what we don’t use in our premium wines, we salvage and use in “The Mutt.” Maya and Sophie aren’t shy about their pedigrees, and we’re not shy about using “seconds,” either, because they make a wine made from premium grapes very affordable and tasty, too. So come take a walk on the wild side—this Merlotful red blend will have you running through the vineyards, leaping for joy!
