The 2018 Austin Hope Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon is a big, powerful, modern-styled Cab that expresses aromas of fresh black currants and cherries accompanied by subtle, smoky notes and dried spices. On the palate, this lavish, powerful wine is layered with juicy blackberry, ripe cherry, vanilla bean, and brown butter. It’s full-bodied and rich, balanced by a touch of bright acidity and firm, polished tannins.
