"The 2012 Hoopes Vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet is made with the same care and thoughtfulness of our single vineyard series. A blend of fruit from three different sources in the Yountville and Oakville appellations, this stunning wine over-delivers for the price on intensity and richness “ – Lindsay Hoopes, Second Generation Proprietor
“On the nose it presents with sweet and oral elements. It reminds me of raspberry violet candies, sweet cherries, and delicate rosewater. On the mouthfeel, the wine is lush and generous, with a hint of sweetness and a full, but supple, texture. Its nish is focused and lengthy with an acidity that creates an integrated nish.” – Anne Vawter, Winemaker
Hoopla Chardonnay is a bright, aromatic 100% un-oakedChardonnay that is pleasing in both texture and finish. It has lovely rich pear character mixed with aromatic Meyerlemon that is reminiscent of the old world. A fresh wine forsipping without food, or to serve alongside dinner
Hoopla 2013 Chardonnay has a beautiful clear bright golden color. From the rst pour, it explodes from the glass with tropical fruits, guava and crisp bright citrus notes, with a rich warm malted element that derives from our use of 10% barrel fermentation. In the mouth, it is bright, with a generous round viscosity. e clean crisp nish will have you wanting more.
If you are looking for a pleasing wine to serve as an appertif, the crisp yet subtle oak avor of this Hoopla Chardonnay would be ideal along with a cheese plate. For heavier fare, think poultry! Turkey or pheasant would be nice options. And for vegetarians, pair this wine with a vegetable lasagna or a veggie stir-fry.
It’s full of mischief: do what you want, and apologize later…but only if you have to!

The Hudson Vineyard Syrah is always a stand out in the Rudius portfolio for its considerably French-leaning style and and incredible balance. While many Northern California Syrahs are defined by their extract and viscosity, the Hudson is something altogether different. Both the mouthfeel and aromatics are dominated by secondary characteristics, brought to the forefront by beautifully balanced acidity.
Forrest mushrooms, roasted game meat and accents of cardamon spice are highlighted by just-ripe fig and a fresh brininess, owing to the distinct minerality of Hudson’s soils. The Rudius signature subtlety with oak on thier Rhones serves to preserve the pristine fruit character of the Alban Clone, while the purely native fermentation leaves the wine’s inherent aromatics intact. This is one California Syrah that strongly speak to its origin, and will undoubtedly remind you why you fell in love with the varietal and the terroir in the first place.
