Austin Hope Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

$54.99

95 point new release                                               A fantastic new Cabernet from Paso Robles! Wine Enthusiast #10 Wine of 2019! 95 Points Wine Enthusiast: "This bottling remains as impressive and delicious as it did upon debut two vintages ago. Aromas of black cherry, hickory smoke and vanilla cookie lead into a palate of brown sugar, sea salt, caramel and black-cherry foam, all framed by polished tannins and just enough acidity." 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 and how their pride and knowledge can be brought to life in a bottle of wine. Deep ruby in color, the 2018 Austin Hope Cabernet Sauvignon expresses intense fragrances of black currants, ripe black cherries and blackberries with subtle notes of violets, mocha and dried spices. It’s a big, powerful, modern-styled wine with velvety tannins and heaps of juicy blackberry and cherry fruit, while nuances of cedar, clove and vanilla bean round out the long, smooth finish. It’s full bodied, rich and balanced by fresh acidity with a firm, polished tannin structure.

Deep, dark purple more like a young syrah than a cab....aromas of menthol, violets, and just a whiff of smoke followed by a velvety mouthful of plums, chocolate, and soft tannins....this really is a beautiful wine, but drinks more like a merlot than a cab sauv....

Quintessential Paso Robles style Cabernet. Perhaps one of the benchmarks for the style? Yes - it’s over extracted and very ripe a la Caymus style, but damn, it’s good! Fresh blueberries mix with ripe blackberries - silky mouthfeel - and incredible finish with layers of berry, pepper, and clove. You either love the style or hate it - but it is very representative of Paso Robles. 2018 vintage on Mar 14, 2020
