Hope Family Troublemaker Red

Winemaker's Notes

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.

    Tobacco musky nose. Fruity with some oak, spicy earthy finish. Quite a good sipping wine.

    Too oaky. Like drinking a vanilla cherry soda.
