Austin Hope Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo County, Central Coast, California, United StatesCabernet Sauvignon has been an extended part of the Hope Family’s viticultural history, and no one has embraced the potential of Paso Robles more than Austin Hope, the winemaker and architect of this big cabernet. Not for the timid, its opaque opening leads to an intense, black-fruited big red flecked with black currants, blackberries and black cherries that persist form front to back. It’s also spicy, mixing tobacco and cloves with smoky vanilla notes. It is just a baby and will keep a decade before it begins to open up to tell the Paso Robles story.Tasted: 04 June 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 69.99 private wine shops US 50.00 winery direct Producer: Hope Family WineryDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
