AUSTIN HOPE SENSORY TASTING
Sunday, September 21st at the Tasting Tent!
This is going to be a fabulous tasting event because there IS a difference! This past summer, along with the 2014 Wine Blogger’s Conference, I spent a week in Paso Robles Wine Country. Paso Robles wines reflect the unique terroir of this area which is similar to Southern Rhone. I am looking forward to this event!
Acclaimed winemaker Austin Hope has one simple goal: to make spectacular, Estate Grown Syrah and Grenache. Join him for the Hope Family Wines Flavor Profile & Tasting and learn how to break down each flavor profile, complete with food pairings and subtle highlights that make his accomplishment worth raising a glass for.
The Austin Hope Grenache has a gorgeous ruby hue. It displays sweet aromas of dried cranberry, raspberry and plum; traces of allspice, vanilla and cinnamon add complexity in the background.
The Austin Hope Syrah is grown on the Hope Family Vineyard, which is located 20 miles east of the Pacific Ocean in the Templeton Gap region. The site’s rocky soils of clay and limestone make it ideal for the Rhône varietals to which it is planted. The vines are managed carefully to keep cluster counts low, resulting in fruit with great intensity and rich in berry flavors.
