About the event
2022 AMERICAN WINERY OF THE YEAR!
CJ Gormley is flying down from consistently one of the most popular producers in Paso Robles, and a name recognized globally: Hope Family Wines! The family has been farming vineyard land in Paso for over 30 years. Winemaker and owner Austin Hope has been praised for his wines which consistently receive monster scores and sell out every year. CJ is doing a very special tasting for us with many wines that are rarely seen out of the tasting room, winery only and some you probably didn't know Austin produced.
2022 Austin Hope Cellar Select Sauvignon Blanc ($47)
Ultra limited production. On the nose, Meyer lemon and hints of lemon grass. Flavors of sweet lemon curd with a touch of vanilla. This medium bodied white has an inherent creaminess from neutral oak barrels and splash of acid that excites.
2021 Austin Hope GSM ($65)
This classic Rhone blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre possesses aromas of fresh blackberry, black currants and violets. On the palate, this full bodied wine is layered with dark fruit, dried violets and savory undertones. The finish is long and integrated with beautifully weighted tannins.
2021 Austin Hope Cellar Select Malbec ($65)
Ultra limited production. Indulge in aromas of fresh plum, sweet tobacco, and cocoa. Fresh flavors of red plum, blackberry and vanilla develop into refined, dusty tannins that frame this full bodied wine perfectly leaving flavors of sweet oak on the finish.
2021 Austin Hope Cabernet Sauvignon ($56)
Aromas of freshly picked black currants, ripe and blackberries, with subtle notes of violets, mocha and dried spices. On the palate, it’s a luscious modern-styled wine layered with an abundance of juicy olallieberry and cherry fruit, while nuances of cedar, clove, nutmeg and vanilla bean round out the long smooth finish. Full-bodied and rich, balanced by fresh acidity and integrated, polished tannins.
2021 Austin Hope Petite Sirah / Lagrein ($87)
This is our 3rd release of this intensely rich blend. Full bodied and well structured, the wine begins with dark fruit aromas and savory notes of spice. Flavors of blackberry, black currant are balanced with spices of black pepper and sage. This full bodied wine has long lingering tannins that coat your whole palate before fishing with sweet oak notes.
