Winemaker Notes

The 2009 Austin Hope Grenache is a balanced wine with a robust bouquet of dried cherry, raspberry, cocoa, earth and spices. The wine's spicy and earthy entry is backed by a zesty acidity and supple tannins. Soft, yet powerful flavors of fig, cherry and notes of pepper and licorice follow, leaving a smooth long finish of red berries and herbs. The 2009 Austin Hope Grenache will develop with age and should be enjoyed over the next four to seven years.

Wine Enthusiast
The Hope winery has produced one of the best Grenaches of the vintage. Avoids the common pitfalls of this tricky variety to give a bone dry, softly tannic wine that’s rich in black cherry, prosciutto and black pepper flavors. The texture is so silky, you could substitute this for Pinot Noir.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Grenache is an expressive, radiant wine graced with red fruit, rose petals, flowers and licorice. It reveals lovely inner perfume and sweetness, although some of the sheer juiciness of the fruit tapers off just a touch on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017.

Austin Hope, California
Austin Hope The Winery in Paso Robles Winery Image

Austin Hope grew up working alongside his father, inheriting his love and respect for the region. He led the family’s move into winemaking in 1995, and further exploration of Paso began. In 2000, Austin created the Austin Hope label, making very small productions of Rhône varietals. These wines are produced from vines grown at the family’s estate property, where soils and climate have similarities with Rhône Valley vineyards. They remain small yet extraordinary productions. Each bottling holds onto a unique intensity and softness, expressing a special side of Paso.

Today, Austin is showcasing an even greater sweep of the Paso region and expressing a similar richness with a recently released Cabernet Sauvignon. The source of the wine is far-reaching within the appellation - a most discerning group of vineyards located on gently sloping hillsides and hidden pockets across the domain, providing dimension to the Cabernet varietal. The wine has a bold structure of lush, velvety tannins and an unmistakable elegance. It is dark, ripe and eminently enjoyable.

The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces a good majority of the state's wine. This vast district stretches from San Francisco all the way to Santa Barbara along the coast, and reaches inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley.

Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including San Francisco Bay, Monterey, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley.

While the region could probably support almost any major grape varietiy, it is famous for a few. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are among the major ones. The Central Coast is home to many of the state's small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as larger producers also making exceptional wines.

Grenache thrives in any warm, Mediterranean climate where ample sunlight allows its clusters to achieve full phenolic ripeness. While Grenache's birthplace is Spain (there called Garnacha), today it is more recognized as the key player in the red blends of the Southern Rhône, namely Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Côtes du Rhône and its villages. Somm Secret—The Italian island of Sardinia produces bold, rustic, single varietal Grenache (there called Cannonau). California, Washington and Australia have achieved found success with Grenache, both flying solo and in blends.
