The Hope Family created Treana in 1996 to offer this special blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Since its inception it has been widely embraced for displaying how well the flavors of these two grapes from the exceptional terroir of Paso Robles compliment one another creating a rich mouth-filling blend. This latest release is from the outstanding 2014 vintage. Grape lots were fermented individually in stainless-steel tanks for 14 to 20 days. Extended macerations and carefully managed pump overs enhanced the extraction of color and tannin. The varietals were aged separately in French oak barrels, 65% of which were new, 35% were once-used, for thirteen months. The initial blend was assembled in the winter of 2014-2015 and barrel-aged an additional two months. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 92 points saying ""Redolent with ripeness and lavish caramel-vanilla tones throughout, this blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Syrah is very much an Austin Hope wine, alluring in aromas of lush blackcurrant, kirsch and melted chocolate on the nose. The palate is rich with espresso, German chocolate cake and crème de cassis, surrounded by flavors of molasses, brown sugar, coffee candy and even Scotch on the finish." and Tasting Panel Magazine scored this 93 points saying "Deep blackberry nose; smooth, dense and rich with ripe fruit and vanilla oak; velvety texture and a long, opulent finish. 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Syrah."
