The Hope family has been farming in Paso Robles for more than 30 years. When they arrived in this barely-discovered region, they planted apples and grapes. Little did they know that the rolling, oak-studded terrain of Paso Robles would one day become a viticultural terroir of significance and one of the top winegrowing regions for quality red wine within the Central Coast. The Hope family helped transform the ‘wild west’ of Paso Robles into a wine lover’s destination.
Gone are the apple orchards. Today, the Hopes cultivate mature vineyards of the varieties best suited to their area including Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, Mourvedre and Grenache. Vine density has increased and each vine is asked to produce very little fruit. The terroir of this domain expresses itself in its unique regional character. Hope Family Wines consists of five individual brands: Liberty School, Treana, Quest, Austin Hope, Troublemaker.
The Cabernet Sauvignon opens with typical aromas of black cherry, plum and violets. These are echoed on the palate and followed up with flavours of strawberry and baking spices, sandalwood, black pepper and eucalyptus notes. Lots of ripe fruit complimented by supple tannins.
Cabernet Sauvignon is harvested and fermented individually by vineyard lots and then barreled into a combination of French and American oak barrels, 10% of which are new. The wine is racked twice during barrel-aging and gently filtered just prior to bottling. The wine ages for 15 months in oak.
