Winemaker's Notes:

70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah, 10% Merlot.

The 2003 vintage of Treana Red displays a pronounced deep ruby color. Ripe, up-front aromas of cassis, briary black fruits and tobacco are complemented by elegant notes of toasted oak. Syrah adds subtle spice and leathery nuances to the blend. The tannins are well integrated and lend excellent structure. The mouthfeel is full with a seamless, silky texture that carries through the length of the wine.

About Treana Winery:

Treana symbolizes a trinity of natural elements - the sun, the soil, and the ocean - the elements that make Paso Robles and the rest of the Central Coast a prime area for premium wine grapes.

The Hope family began planting vineyards in the area in 1978. Two decades of experience has taught them not only how to grow the finest quality wine grapes, but has also shown them the tremendous potential of the region.

Formerly, the Hopes sold wine under the Hope Family label directly from the winery's tasting room. Beginning with the 1990 vintage, the Hope ranches became the sole source of fruit for Liberty School Cabernet Sauvignon. In 1996, they founded Treana Winery after years of hands-on experience in viticulture and winemaking. Today, the Hopes cultivate mature vineyards of the varietals best suited to their area; Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Grenache, Petit Verdot, Mourvedre and Merlot.
