Located along the foothills of the esteemed Howell Mountain in the Napa Valley, Dancing Hares is a producer known for its two Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant blends from its five acre vineyard site. Dancing Hares was founded in 1997 by Bob Cook and Paula Brooks with the help of Michel Rolland as a consultant winemaker, and in 2016 Tuck and Boo Beckstoffer acquired the establishment and added it to their vast collection of Napa Valley Estates. Divided into two separate plots, the upper portion of the vineyard is recognized for its volcanic soils planted tot Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot while the lower vineyard parcels have clay-loam soils made for Merlot and Cabernet Franc. They typically only produce less than 800 cases of their Bordeaux blend annually, and much of their wine is carried at local restaurants with small distribution outside of Northern California. 

The 2017 Dancing Hares overflows with scents of plum preserve, crème de cassis, and spice box. The velvet structure of the wine evolves into deep flavors of warm licorice, black fruits, and olive tapenade that glide across the silky palate, then finish with volume and length. Made of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot and 6% Merlot.
