ONEHOPE wines originate from a vineyard in Rutherford AVA in Napa Valley. ONEHOPE is currently in the process of building out a tasting room and private estate for their future winery. We tried two blends from ONEHOPE, the first a Cabernet Sauvignon, the second, a Chardonnay. The señoritas would like to report the following:
Cabernet Sauvignon: The fruit is obvious, you will smell plum right away, also heavier on the black and blue fruit, possibly black current or pomegranate. There is also a pleasant spice that hits you, we would go with cinnamon, and maybe a hint of nutmeg. On the palette it tastes like chocolate what a tasty delight! We would classify this one as “off dry”. Additionally, there are some almost medicinal undertones towards the end, perhaps clove on the finish. We would recommend pairing this wine with dessert!
Chardonnay: Light color and body. Tasting notes of pineapple, banana, toasted coconut, baked apple and vanilla bean. Creamy soft and juicy with a semisweet finish. We recommend paring this one with a pork or a rich fish like salmon. These wines help fund clinical trials to find the cure for breast cancer, so support a good cause and have a drink. Cheers!
