The 2019 Austin Hope Cabernet Sauvignon is bold and deep with a layered, elevated palate. This wine offers aromas and flavors of black fruit, oak, licorice, and savory spices. Pair it with grilled baby back ribs. (Tasted: July 5, 2021, San Francisco, CA)
Deep ruby in color, Austin Hope Cabernet Sauvignon 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.
