About Our Ratings

Troublemaker Red Blend, Hope Family Vineyards
Winemaker Austin Hope Wine is always thinking ahead and figuring out how he can make the best possible wines. With Troublemaker the answer was easy...choices! A blend of multiple varietals and three different vintages gave him the choices he needed to craft a superb drinking red. The majority of wine comes from 2012 vintage, with a remaining portion coming from 2011 and 2010. The younger wine brings forth a youthful vibrancy and freshness while the base vintage (2011) adds complexity and structure that completes the wine. 50% Syrah, 20% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre, 10% Zinfadel and 10% Petit Sirah, it's a wine that really shows off the bounty of their vineyards in Paso Robles. The wine was aged in French oak barrels an average of about 14 months. It displays robust aromas of ripe black cherry, vanilla, nutmeg and tobacco. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel. Vibrant flavors of red berries and strawberry are layered with pepper, cocoa and anise. The trouble starts when you're trying real hard not to open that next bottle.

    Comments about Troublemaker Red Blend, Hope Family Vineyards:

    Had this with a seafood dinner at a restaurant in Florida and we drink a lot of red wine blends and I have to say this was our favorite so far. We also drink a lot of Cabi and Merlot and this wine is so good. It is fruity with vanilla and just has a lot of complex flavors for a reasonably priced wine. I would definitely recommend.
