Austin Hope

Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

1978 Chuck Hope left his job in beverage distribution, moved to Paso Robles, became a farmer, & with time became a top grape grower. Working with his father, Austin led the family into winemaking in ‘95, creating his label in 2000. Grapes from small blocks in AVAs of Paso Robles: Creston, Estrella, Adelaida, El Pomar & Willow Creek, aged in 75% new French oak, 18 mos. Dark Ruby, aromas of sweet ripe black fruits & dried smoky spices. Flavors of ripe blackberry, sweet cacao, espresso & vanilla oak. Big wine, fine tannins that needed 45 minutes, lingering fruit finish. The 15% ABV was not an issue. — a year ago

This is a fascinating wine. I believe Chuck Wagner worked with Austin on this wine. It is huge HUGE cab, and while I am not a fruitbomb fan, this stays just barely balanced. Tasty wine!

Winery notes

Syrah
The 2016 Judge Family Vineyard Syrah is sourced from the cold climate of the Bennett Valley of Sonoma. Meticulously farmed by Joe and Gail Judge, this rocky sloping vineyard planted on a mix of volcanic tufa, weathered stones, and clay, produces elegant and intensely aromatic Syrahs reminiscent of the great wines of Northern Rhone. Bennett Valley is a gently sloping elevated valley nestled between three mountain peaks in Sonoma County. Within the Sonoma Valley appellation

Sonoma Mountain and the Sonoma Coast, the well-drained mountain benchland soils combine with early morning fog and cool marine breezes to create ideal conditions for growing exceptional cool-climate varietals. The wine was cave aged in a combination of 78% used and 22% new French oak barrels for 20 months and bottled unfined and unfiltered.

4M Late Harvest Petite Sirah 2006

2006 vintage. The unlabeled bottle on the left. This one is brandy fortified late harvest petite sirah. Very pleasant, styled much more like a traditional port than their regular late harvest petite sirah which is not fortified. Some heat evident here, though it doesn’t detract from the fruit. Smooth and sweet with a medium short finish. — a year ago
