Austin Hope Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles 2020
With a considerable history of 95-97 point scores, we’re eagerly taking advantage of the new vintage before it sells out. Don’t be perturbed by the young age of this beauty; it drinks like a three-year-old juicy Napa Cabernet. Bright berry fruit, black currants, and subtle spice. The palate is layered with juicy and ripe blackberry, vanilla bean, and brown butter. Strike while the iron is hot!
California’s vast Paso Robles district has proved hospitable to a large and eclectic range of grape varieties, and while zinfandel and Rhône-style red blends have become the calling cards, we mustn’t sleep on the region’s world-class Cabernet Sauvignons. Austin Hope is undoubtedly one of Paso’s flag-bearers, attracting widespread critical acclaim for its Cabernet while also keeping it startlingly affordable. We have no doubt that this richly textured, endlessly complex Cabernet would cost twice as much if it carried a Napa Valley designation. This is blue-chip, cellar-worthy wine at a price that beggar belief!
Bedecked with one of the greatest old-school labels in wine and keeping that promise with the classically styled wine in the bottle, this Cabernet consistently cracks critics’ Top-100 lists and delivers both the rich texture and refreshing acidity Paso Robles is known for. Vinified lot-by-lot and aged in mostly new French oak, this wine has all the luxurious bells and whistles to complement its profound soil character. Pour a glass and it’s a full-court press of black cherry, black currant, roasted coffee, cola nut, humus, dark spice, and so much more. This is an incredibly consistent wine and one of the best California Cabernet values around.
