Wine Enthusiast Review
Extremely rich, deep and extracted on the nose, this bottling by Austin Hope is loaded with vanilla, cassis, caramel and Bourbon aromas. It's rich, lush and soft on the palate, offering vanilla, sea-salt caramel and coffee flavors set against a black cherry core.
Wine Tasting Notes
Opaque, deeply colored purple black. Bold, muddled blackberry, ripe black currants, blueberry syrup, crushed violets, roasted coffee, sweet vanilla, caramel, and clove aromas. Rich and palate coating, the intense black fruit flavors are marked by a distinctive toasted/smoky-oak. The tannins are moderate and velvety, and the acidity balances the richness of the wine, leading to a long oak-driven finish.
