Austin Hope Syrah 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2004 Syrah has a beautifully extracted, deep color. This wine offers aromas of blueberry, mulberry and violets with pancetta notes. Similar dark berry flavors and a high-toned minerality are enhanced by solid, but seamless tannins that provide structure, and a lush elegant mouth-feel.

The Hope family planted wine-grapes in Paso Robles in 1978. They were among a handful of pioneering families who helped to shape and gain recognition for this distinctive winegrowing region. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc were the varieties first planted by the Hopes. They worked with terrains in distinctly different vineyard sites both east and west of the Salinas River. Initially, demand for their grapes came primarily from wineries outside of Paso Robles, including Napa Valley. In the early 90’s, the family began producing estate wines under the Hope Family Farms label. At this time, they focused their farming efforts to better suit the Paso Robles terroir and eliminated their white grape plantings entirely. Instead, they opted to source Chardonnay and white Rhone varieties from the cooler climates of Monterey County. It had become abundantly clear to them that Paso Robles was capable of producing bold red wines that could compete in the international arena. The Hopes established Treana Winery in 1996. Today, third-generation farmer Austin Hope is at the helm as director of winemaking and viticulture for the 15,000-case brand. He remains uncompromising in his pursuit of wines of exceptional quality that specifically reflect their growing regions. His 2003 Treana Red, a Cabernet Sauvignon-based, proprietary blend from Paso Robles, was recognized by Decanter magazine as the top red blend in North America. Treana White, a blend of Viognier and Marsanne sourced from the Mer Soleil Vineyard of the Santa Lucia Highlands region, continues to gain critical acclaim from chefs, sommeliers and wine media internationally. The wines are distributed in all 50 states nationally, and in Canada, Germany and Japan. Read less
