Treana Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles 2016

Editorial Review by Snooth Editorial:

Sweet floral cherry and a touch of something savory on the nose. Concentrated black cherry and blackberry fruit on the palate mixed with dark licorice and chocolate notes, a bit of oak spice and medium tannin supporting the palate which ends with a smoky finish.

HARVEST NOTES: The anticipated El Niño gave us about eight inches of rain in Paso Robles, which was less than hoped for, but much needed after the four prior drought years. The rainfall had a positive effect on fruit quality and yields, specifically for the Rhône and Bordeaux varietals. In 2016, most varieties of grapes came in above average in terms of yield and quality, which was a welcomed surprise. The overall 2016 vintage delivered high quality fruit with above expectations on color and fruit intensity. WINEMAKING NOTES: After harvest, vineyard lots were fermented individually in stainless-steel tanks for 14 to 20 days. Extended macerations and carefully managed pump overs enhanced the extraction of color and tannin. The varietals were aged separately for 15 months in a combination of 23% new barrels and 11% once used, of which 77% was French and 23% American Oak. The initial blend was assembled in the winter of 2018 and aged an additional three months in 73% brand new oak and 22% once used, of which 96% was French and 4% was American Oak . The wine was racked only twice during its cellar life, with the final racking occurring just prior to bottling. TASTING NOTES: APPEARANCE: Opaque, deeply colored purple black. AROMA: Bold, muddled blackberry, ripe black currants, blueberry syrup, crushed violets, roasted coffee, sweet vanilla, caramel, and clove. PALATE: 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. VARIETAL BREAKDOWN: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon 10% Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Petite Sirah OAK PROGRAM: • Prior to blending: 15 months in 26% new, 11% once used oak - 77% French, 23% American oak • After blending: 3 months in 73% new, 22% once used oak - 96% French, 4% American oak ALCOHOL: 14.5%

Back by popular demand, here's the 2nd vintage of Treana Cabernet after receiving raves reviews! Cabernet Sauvignon has long been part of the Hope Family's viticultural history. Growing up in his family's vineyards, Austin Hope has spent much of his life around the fabled varietal. Starting out he apprenticed with winemaker Chuck Wagner at Caymus who taught him the nuances of crafting world-class Cabernet. He brings that knowledge and experience to this wine sourced from some of the best vineyards in Paso Robles. After harvest, vineyard lots were fermented individually in stainless-steel tanks for 14 to 20 days. Extended macerations and carefully managed pumpovers enhanced the extraction of color and tannin. It's a blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot, the varietals were aged separately for seventeen months in a combination of 77% French oak and 23% American Oak, of which 39% were new barrels, 42% were once used, and 19% were twice used. The initial blend was assembled in the spring of 2017 and barrel-aged an additional four months. The wine was racked only twice during its cellar life, with the final racking occurring just prior to bottling. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored the 2014 94 points. No score for this wine yet but it's widely recognized that 2015 was another spectacular vintage. The wine shows black currant, blackberry jam, plum, cedar, dried tobacco leaves, rose petal, vanilla, clove, and cinnamon on the nose. On the palate it's full-bodied and rich, with bold black fruits. The fruit maintains a juicy quality with the refreshing acidity. The tannins maintain their grip well into the finish which is layered with toasty oak notes.

Cabernet Sauvignon has long been part of the Hope Family’s viticultural history. Growing up in his family’s vineyards, Austin Hope has spent much of his life around the fabled varietal. Three important individuals would help mentor his character; Austin’s father Chuck Hope and his uncle Paul paved the way for his future success, instilling in him life lessons of perseverance and determination, while winemaker Chuck Wagner taught him the nuances of crafting world-class Cabernet Sauvignon. As a TRIBUTE to the three men who helped influence his path, Austin Hope created Treana Cabernet Sauvignon – a wine that encapsulates the quintessential learnings over the course of his career. HARVEST NOTES: The 2015 vintage saw dramatically reduced yields from the combined effects of four years of drought and cool, unsettled weather during flowering, which resulted in a bit of shatter. The weather patterns continued to fluctuate between cooler and warmer than normal conditions, resulting in a long, drawn out harvest. Yields were down by 30-40% throughout our vineyards, with the drought conditions causing smaller than normal cluster size, but intensely concentrated fruit with great acidity levels. WINEMAKING NOTES: After harvest, vineyard lots were fermented individually in stainless-steel tanks for 14 to 20 days. Extended macerations and carefully managed pump overs enhanced the extraction of color and tannin. The varietals were aged separately for seventeen months in a combination of 77% French oak and 23% American Oak, of which 39% were new barrels, 42% were once used, and 19% were twice used. The initial blend was assembled in the spring of 2017 and barrel-aged an additional four months. The wine was racked only twice during its cellar life, with the final racking occurring just prior to bottling. TASTING NOTES APPEARANCE: Opaque ruby-black AROMA: Black currant, blackberry jam, plum, cedar, dried tobacco leaves, rose petal, vanilla, clove, and cinnamon PALATE: Full-bodied and rich, with bold black fruits that explode across the palate. The fruit maintains a juicy quality with the refreshing acidity. The tannins maintain their grip well into the finish which is layered with toasty oak notes VARIETAL: 95% Cabernet Sauvignon 5% Merlot OAK PROGRAM: 77% French oak, 23% American oak (61% used, 39% new) ALCOHOL: 15.3% TA: 0.61 tar/100mL pH: 3.89

The initial blend was assembled in the winter of 2015 and barrel-aged an additional three months. The wine was racked only twice during its cellar life, with the final racking occurring just prior to bottling. Wine Enthusiast Magazine selected this as an Editors' Choice. Scoring it 94 points they said "For lovers of the rich and ripe Paso Robles style, this is a high-value wine. Aromas of candied black cherry and vanilla pudding meet with roasted game and crushed gravel on the nose. Vanilla holds strong into the palate, where it blends with blueberry syrup and blackened caramel. Well-measured acidity and chalky tannins complete the experience." On Sale! 14.5% ABV
