Austin Hope - Troublemaker - Red Blend
Overview: In Austin Hope’s younger days he was something of a troublemaker. And on those days when his schoolwork or attitude didn’t quite live up to the family’s expectations, he was sent to the vineyards for a hard day’s work meant to teach him a lesson. Little did the Hope’s know that this childhood punishment would be the beginning of a life-long passion and career. It was in those days spent in the vineyards, the Paso Robles sun beating down and his hands in the dirt, that Austin found inspiration for his life’s journey.
Troublemaker is inspired by those early days of pushing boundaries and finding your path. Still stirring things up, we here at Troublemaker are all about challenging the status quo and embracing the journey of life. The way we see it, rules restrict our ability to create and innovate. Besides, pushing the boundaries is fun.
Tasting Notes: Lusciously rich in color and texture, the Troublemaker Red Blend is a beautiful wine with aromas of dark fruit, black pepper and a hint of asphalt. On the pallet, sweet vanilla, black berry cobbler, fresh currant and our signature splash of acidity create a lingering flavor that is finished with smooth & silky tannins.
