    "This bottling is dark in the glass and extremely lavish, with silky aromas of cassis, black cherry and caramel. The palate combines blackberry mousse, mocha and more caramel with a firm tannic structure and buoyant acidity." ~ Wine Enthusiast

    We're in a Cabernet state of mind, winelovers. It just so happens that our friends in Paso Robles have available this Austin Hope Cabernet Sauvignon to satisfy every nuance of our hankering. Rustle up some glasses and pour a generous glass of this delicious red. The layers of dark, ripe fruit will pull you into their warm, happy embrace immediately. If you must move from that chair, hands down our number one recommendation with this big, beautiful Cab is a thick ribeye, grilled, au poivre. Put some caramelized shallots on the plate next to it if you want the pairing to go stratospheric... Pot roast pork shoulder with prunes is another tasty option; be sure to brown it well before putting it in the oven. Not to worry if you're not feeling the meaty dishes; this Austin Hope works wonderfully with a classic eggplant parmesan. The slight bitter found in eggplant is a seamless partner for the tannins in the wine. Hungry yet? Not to worry; there's plenty of Hope to go around.

    Winery:  "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 2016 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 supple, polished tannin structure."

    “The goal for this Cabernet is simple – to make wine that expresses all that Paso has to offer, with its pastoral beauty, perfect soils, maritime climate and limitless possibility.” ~ Austin Hope, Owner/Winemaker
