What to Drink Now: Cool Weather Reds


October 13, 2013 by Hayley Hamilton

I love the interesting Rhone style wines Austin Hope and his Hope Family Wines team is producing in Paso Robles. His 2011 Austin Hope Syrah is the perfect cool weather wine filled with spice, structure and sophistication, emulating his much loved Rhone Cote Rotie wines. Grown on his SIP (Sustainability in Practice) certified estate vineyards the wine is delicious on its own, filled with earthy blackberry and licorice notes, or paired with grilled salmon , charred octopus , roasted winter squash or hearty grilled rib-eye steaks. A few older vintages of the Syrah are available locally at Spec’s and Total Wine for about $35 or you can find the current release on his website.
