Delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Paso Robles. Would love to see how this progresses with age.

Deep ruby red. Lots of caramel, anise, baking spices and dark cherries on the nose. Medium tannins (6/10) and medium to medium plus bodied. Well integrated with alcohol you can feel but not over the top. Rich palate with notes of cinnamon, brown sugar, dark berries, and cherries. Long finish. Drink till 2026.

Very good Paso cab. Smooth, balanced and constrained fruit. PAG summer tasting. At $50 not exactly a steal.

Very enjoyable Cabernet Sauvignon from Paso. This is very young and tight knit. Silky tannins, oak, fig, plum, black fruit. After about 2 hours in the decanter it is really showing well. Hold on to this one a few more years.

Lovely and bright sumptuous bramble-cherry delight. Minimal tannins, yet lingers luxuriously on the tongue. Pungent fruity nose with an alcohol overtone.

Sipping Fine Wine

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 nice elegant cab that really blossomed in the glass. Luscious black cherry, dark chocolate, vanilla hints that really measured up to the nose profile.
