The 2017 Austin Hope Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is an enticing dark crimson. Warm aromas of blueberries, roasted coffee, burnt toffee, cocoa and dried baking spices fill the glass. On the palate, layers of fine dusty tannins are met with earthy tones, toasted cloves, creamy vanilla and a touch of bright red fruit capped by an epic firm structure.

Luxurious, lush aromas of black cherry, caramel, clove and oak show on the nose of this reserve bottling. Polished tannins frame the unctuous palate, where black cherry and cream tones meet with milk chocolate and mint while bright acidity pops on the finish.
