1. Visionary Winemaker: Austin Hope, the mastermind behind this wine, is a visionary winemaker with a deep passion for his craft.  Being born into the business helped.  Austin's early exposure to the world of winemaking and his passion for the craft led him to pursue formal education in viticulture and enology. He studied at California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) in San Luis Obispo, where he honed the skills necessary for success in winemaking.  After completing his studies, Austin joined his family's winery, Treana Winery, in Paso Robles.  Yep, he's the guy behind that other mega successful cabernet sauvignon, Treana. 

2. Superb Terroir: Paso Robles, located in California's Central Coast wine region, boasts an ideal terroir for growing Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The region's unique microclimate, characterized by warm days and cool nights, allows for optimal grape ripening, resulting in bold fruit flavors and balanced acidity in the wines.  The fleece test as we like to call it.  The land is ideal for winemaking if you need a fleece or pull over at night if your are outside walking around.   

3. Premium Vineyards: The wine is sourced from carefully selected, premium vineyards in Paso Robles. These vineyards are meticulously tended, ensuring that only superior fruit is used in production.  

4. Exceptional Grape Quality: The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes used in this wine are of exceptional quality, hand-picked at the peak of ripeness. This ensures that the wine captures the full expression of the varietal's flavors and aromas.
