About Austin Hope 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon, Paso Robles
Hope Family Wines is still proudly family-owned and operated with Austin Hope now presiding over five unique labels: Liberty School, Austin Hope, Treana, Candor, and Troublemaker. Austin maintains the Hope family’s legacy of sustainable farming practices and long standing tradition of making delicious, reliable, and accessible wines, all while infusing a vibrancy that resonates from the vine to the glass. Austin Hope Cabernet Sauvignon stems from an endless fascination with the soils and diverse sub-regions of Paso Robles, where exceptional wines are being made. It also tells the story of the Hope family’s long history in the region. Grapes were sourced from small chosen blocks in the following AVAs of Paso Robles: Creston, Estrella, Adelaida, El Pomar and Willow Creek Districts. The wine was aged 18 months in 70% new French oak barrels. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored this 97 points saying "Vintner Austin Hope, whose family is intertwined in the rise of Paso Robles, spent years working to release a wine of this caliber. Dark and thick in the glass, aromas of black currant and blueberry meet with roasted coffee, chocolate syrup and baked plum on the wondrous nose. The palate is soft and extremely expressive, with blueberry, black pepper, firm midpalate tannins and a finish that’s redolent of cappuccino candies."
