Wine Advocate | Rating: 97Inky purple-black in color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Missouri Hopper has intense cassis, blackberries and warm plums notions on the nose with a vast mAclange of Chinese five spice, chargrill, cigar box, menthol and licorice suggestions. Full-bodied, rich, ripe and opulent, it has a solid frame of velvety tannins and well-played freshness, finishing long and earthy.Author: Lisa Perrotti-Brown
