DANCING HARES 2011 PROPRIETARY RED "MAD HATTER" NAPA VALLEY 750mL

The goal at Dancing Hares is to produce a wine, without varietal designation, that best captures the character of the vintage and the vineyard. Vintners Bob Cook and Paula Brooks have put together a dream team for this incredible project: Andy Erickson (winemaker), Michel Rolland (consulting oenologist) and David Abreu (vineyard manager).

Dancing Hares’ vineyard is a uniquely planned, impeccably maintained five-acre estate vineyard tucked in the eastern hills of the Napa Valley, at the foot of Howell Mountain. The vineyard consists of two distinct parcels that, when blended, produce wines of depth and distinction.

A blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc, and 4% Petit Verdot, the 2011 delivers a wine with dark color, natural acidity and freshness, and a decidedly European aromatic profile. The fruit extracted easily in the fermenters, and the resulting wine went straight to barrel without settling or fining. The latest vintage of Mad Hatter is immediately open and enjoyable, with great complexity and interest. While dark and concentrated, the wine has soft, polished tannins and can be enjoyed without decanting. While at this point this vintage is already in a good place, it will continue to evolve for the coming 10-12 years.
