(From 2007 Vintage) Austin allows the wine to show uncanny complexity in its youth, yet rich and fruit-forward characteristics. With bright aromatics that evoke thoughts of smoked meat, the wine shows amazing depth and structure, bright fruit and a long finish.
Inspired by varieties that flourish in Paso Robles and California's Central Coast, Troublemaker is a truly distinct Paso blend consisting of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, Petite Syrah and Zinfandel. By using a multi-vintage approach, winemaker Austin Hope allows the wine to show uncanny complexity in its youth, yet rich and fruit-forward characteristics that make it ready upon release. With rich aromatics that display hints of smoke and violets, bright fruit on the palate and a long finish, Troublemaker shows amazing depth and structure.
This is a rather complex n. Cali red blend. It walks a fine line between velvety smoothness and punching you in the taste buds. Smoky, deep fruit flavors combine with a spicy middle and then give way to a smooth finish. This is a versatile wine that can pair with your main course or dessert.
I don't know the year. Had a couple glasses at a restaurant. Really good. Full and complex but smooth. Very easy to drink. Delicious.
Fantastic California blend. Lovely tobacco start with a dry finish. Enjoyable affordable wine
Paso depth, complexity, great finish. Flexible with food. Had at public house in temecula.
Tobacco musky nose. Fruity with some oak, spicy earthy finish. Quite a good sipping wine.

Chocolate fruit. Really nice. Smoky air to it. Raspberry and chocolate and smoke.
No tannin, touch of good acid, Rachel really likes this.
So smooth. Decanter works very well to open up flavor
Alex and Henk like it alright, best with grill or BBQ
