About Austin Hope 2018 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 Geneseo Districts. The wine was aged 16 months in 75% new French oak barrels.
Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored this 95 points saying "Quite dark in the glass, this reliable crowd-pleaser begins with hearty aromas of black currant, black plum, lush oak and caramel, a hint of olive and loads of clove and nutmeg spice. The mouthfeel is hearty and rich with just enough tannic weight to balance the creamy black cherry, caramel and chocolate ice cream flavors, which lead to an oaky finish."
