Wine Review: This pitch black colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Austin Hope opens with a fragrant blueberry and black currant bouquet with hints of cherry. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and velvety smooth. The flavor profile is a dark chocolate and black coffee blend with notes of blueberry, toasted walnut and oak. We also detected some hints of stewed plum. The finish displays tannins that last for a very long time. The Panel suggested drinking this crowd-pleasing Cab on its own. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Dark garnet in color, the 2017 Austin Hope Cabernet Sauvignon expresses aromas of freshly picked blueberries, ripe black cherries, with subtle notes of roasted coffee, cocoa and dried spices. On the palate, the luscious supple tannins are powerful yet modern in style with layered flavors of juicy blackberry and red fruit, while nuances of black pepper, clove and vanilla bean round out the long smooth finish. It’s full-bodied and rich, balanced by fresh acidity and firm, polished tannins.
