K&L Notes

Austin Hope Cabernet Sauvignon stems from a driving fascination with the various terroirs of Paso Robles. 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. Winery note: "Deep ruby in color, the 2015 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."

    Big, robust, jammy and fruit forward. If you love Cab that matches Robert Parker's palate, this may be the wine for you. From the makers of Troublemaker, here's another wine you can definitely get into trouble with, as it is very easy drinking and approachable. Paso Robles is proving once again that it's an American Viticulture Area that stands on it own.

    I preach a lot about bringing the Old World style to the New World in the form of acid and balance, but sometimes I just want some fruit! Whether I'm cooking a giant rib roast or it's 20 degrees outside, sometimes the occasion calls for something more robust and fruit-driven then the high-acid, spicy reds that typically grace my wine fridge, and that is where the Austin Hope Cab Sauv steps in! Paso Robles never disappoints when it comes to bringing the fruit, and the Austin Hope is full of copious amounts of blackberry, blueberry, plum and cocoa. Top this off with a palate that is a touch brighter than its obvious competitor and close comparison, all the while still delivering the intense, rich black fruit and mocha that big Cali Cab drinkers want and drink.

    Cabernet drinkers looking for an intensely rich, decadent, and seductive Cabernet will love this wine! It is loaded with flavors of espresso bean, vanilla, blackberry jam and plums. The finish is velvety with sweet flavors of raisins and chocolate that linger. This is very much made in a style similar to Caymus Cabernet. I would say this wine even takes that style a step further. Lots of wine here for under $50!
