Dense and concentrated, the 2017 Missouri Hopper is a powerhouse, character-filled wine.
Aromas of herbs and crushed rock accompany notes of currant, plum and licorice. On the palate, the wine is plush yet nuanced, with bittersweet chocolate flavors, black currant, and cedar. Firm yet fine tannins carry through the long, opulent finish.
