2011 Austin Hope Grenache
Like the season before, the 2011 growing season in Paso Robles began with heavy rainfall and cooler temperatures. Grapes were hand-picked and then fermented in five-ton, open-top tanks. The 2011 Austin Hope Grenache has a gorgeous ruby hue. It displays sweet aromas of dried cranberry, raspberry and plum; traces of allspice, vanilla and cinnamon add complexity in the background.
