Austin Hope - Cabernet Sauvignon - Paso Robles
Overview: Austin and his team know just how unique each part of Paso Robles can be. We seek out the vineyards from all over the Paso Robles AVA that best define Paso’s Cabernet Sauvignon. What you may find surprising is that east of the Salinas River, atop ancient flood plains and sea beds, is where we find the soils that drive the wine quality.
Our region is well-known for its calcareous and limestone soils. We love them…in moderation. We find that a good combination of broken-down calcareous stones, disintegrated bedrock and gravel combined with loamy soils make magic!
Tasting Notes: Deep ruby in color, Austin Hope Cabernet Sauvignon expresses aromas of fresh black currants and cherries accompanied by subtle smoky notes and dried spices. On the palate, this lavish powerful wine is layered with juicy blackberry, ripe cherry, vanilla bean and brown butter. It’s full-bodied and rich, balanced by a touch of bright acidity and firm polished tannins.
Pairing: Beef and venison
