Treana Cabernet Sauvignon

Treana Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo County, Central Coast, California, United StatesCabernet Sauvignon has played a significant role in the Hope Family viticultural history, and this Treana cab is an ode to some who influenced winemaker Austin Hope: his father Chuck Hope, his uncle Paul, and Napa Valley winemaker Chuck Wagner. The mix is 90 percent cabernet sauvignon with merlot, petit verdot and petite sirah filling in the back 10 percent. It’s typically dark, in fact opaque, with rich, ripe, powerful aromas of black currants and blackberry jam. It’s warm, and you feel the heat, but it has a sense of elegance the belies its alcohol and power. I love the tobacco, clove, and cinnamon-spiked black fruit with well managed, softish tannins and a wisp of smoke. Impressive. Drink or hold through 2025.Tasted: 02 August 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 39.99 estimated retail US 30.00 estimated retail Producer: Hope Family WineryDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
