Treana Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
An excellent display of Paso Roble Cabernet. At first glance, this dark crimson wine sets the stage for the beautiful aromas of warm chocolate, roasted coffee & toasty cedar. On the palate, intense dark fruit, sweet vanilla combine with smoky-oak to give a long rich mouth feel that finishes with balanced acidity and moderate, velvety tannins

Aromas of black cherry, caramel sauce, dried herbs and crushed rocks lead into a palate shaped by strong yet relenting tannins. Flavors of oak and more dark cherry ride a silky mouthfeel.
Blackberry jam on hot buttered toast with exciting aromatics showing opulence and spice. Flowers, ripe berries and currant notes.
The same trinity of elements that inspired the Hope family to move to Paso Robles nearly four decades ago was also the inspiration for their iconic label: Treana. Inspired by the warm, nurturing sun, the cool breezes of the sea, and the rich nutrients of the soil, Treana wines capture the unique essence of California’s Central Coast. By working closely with family farms, they source grapes that capture the truest varietal characteristics for their flagship brand. The care that goes into each bottle ensures an exceptional experience whether you choose to enjoy a bottle tonight or let it age for a special occasion.
Treana Red is a quintessential Paso Robles red, blended from Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, perfect varietals for the unique climate of Paso Robles. Treana Blanc showcases the flavors of the Rhône Valley with Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne, varietals that impart old-world flavor on a contemporary and New World wine. Treana Cabernet & Chardonnay are a tribute to the three men that mentored Austin in becoming the winemaker he is today.
The Treana label represents world-class wine made in a world-class wine region. The interplay of sun, soil, and sea is what makes the microclimates of California’s Central Coast so unique, and Treana wines so remarkable.
As Paso Robles, California has soared in number of wineries and gained in popularity, Cabernet Sauvignon has firmly taken root as the region’s number one varietal. Alone, it accounts for just over 40% of plantings and is grown throughout both the western and eastern sides of the appellation. Though viticulture here dates back to the 18th century, Cabernet Sauvignon didn’t emerge as a significant grape here until the 1970’s. But since then it has definitely made up for lost time.
Legendary winemaker and consultant Andre Tchelistcheff first recognized Paso’s potential with Cabernet Sauvignon in the early 1960’s. The calcareous soil and dramatic diurnal temperature changes of Paso’s westside particularly intrigued him. Today modern winemaking techniques and focused experimentation with various clones, rootstocks and vineyard strategies optimize the region's ideal combination of soil and climate to deliver the best fruit possible.
The results are evident in the glass. Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon can be mesmerizing, with rich aromas and flavors of blackberry, cassis, black cherry, graphite, toasty oak, vanilla and spice. The structure, balance and unbridled opulence of these wines impress from first sip to last. Not surprisingly, Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignons have steadily grown in reputation, not just in the U.S., but around the world.
