Treana Red Paso Robles 2015

Editorial Review by Snooth Editorial:

Blackberry and black cherry fruit on the nose with violet and chocolate notes. Zesty, full and rich, full of life. The palate is expansive and spicy with a full load of spice, refreshing acidity, chocolate tannins and a balanced palate that finishes candied and fruity and creamy. Easy to like, easy to drink and fun.

Big and bold on the nose with blackberry jam, vanilla cream, savory notes and touches of wet clay. Obviously a big wine at 15%, this lives up to that with bold flavors of blackberry, black cherry and strong gripping tannins, but draws some complexity in the form of dark spice, floral notes, cocoa and loamy, mineral earth.

Treana is the sum of elements that influence our wines: the land that our family farms, the warm California sun that nurtures, and the cooling ocean breeze that balances. These elements combine to create the perfect growing conditions for our grapes. As the original label of Hope Family Wines, Treana represents over thirty years of grape-growing history. A classic Paso Robles blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, Treana Red uses fruit from our finest vineyards. Combined with a passionate winemaking team and years of refinement, Treana Red is the Paso Robles benchmark blend. 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 fifteen months in French oak barrels, 50% of which were new. The initial blend was assembled in the winter of 2016 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. TASTING NOTES: The 2015 Treana Red is a deeply colored wine with a purple-black core that fades to a ruby rim. Intense aromas of freshly picked blackberries, muddled black and red currants, along with dried cranberries give way to underlying tones of dried rose petals, violets, potpourri and clove, while caramelized oak notes are spiced by a hint of cinnamon. A velvety rush of ripe blackberries and pomegranate fruits envelop the palate, while subtle nuances of baking spices, cocoa powder and dried vanilla beans add to the wine’s complexity. Full bodied and rich with a beautifully balanced acidity, Treana Red will age gracefully for 10 -15 years. VARIETAL: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon 25% Syrah OAK AGING: 18 months in 50% new, 50% once-used French oak ALCOHOL: 15% TOTAL ACIDITY: 0.62 tar/100mL pH: 3.82

The Hope Family created Treana in 1996 to offer this special blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Since its inception it has been widely embraced for displaying how well the flavors of these two grapes from the exceptional terroir of Paso Robles compliment one another creating a rich mouth-filling blend. This latest release is from the outstanding 2014 vintage. Grape 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 in French oak barrels, 65% of which were new, 35% were once-used, for thirteen months. The initial blend was assembled in the winter of 2014-2015 and barrel-aged an additional two months. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 92 points saying ""Redolent with ripeness and lavish caramel-vanilla tones throughout, this blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Syrah is very much an Austin Hope wine, alluring in aromas of lush blackcurrant, kirsch and melted chocolate on the nose. The palate is rich with espresso, German chocolate cake and crème de cassis, surrounded by flavors of molasses, brown sugar, coffee candy and even Scotch on the finish." and Tasting Panel Magazine scored this 93 points saying "Deep blackberry nose; smooth, dense and rich with ripe fruit and vanilla oak; velvety texture and a long, opulent finish. 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Syrah."
