Liberty School Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Liberty School honors the Hope family’s roots with a dedication to making high quality wines. Wines that are made to be shared and enjoyed with the family we are born with, as well as the family we choose! The Hopes' make wines for those who stay true to their roots and embrace the journey in life. While their techniques have evolved and refined over the years, some things have remained very much the same: Austin Hope’s commitment to success, aversion to failure, and stewardship of the land are the same principles that his grandfather instilled into the family business four decades and three generations ago.
Harvested and fermented individually by vineyard lots and then barreled into a combination of French and American oak barrels, 10% of which are new. This wine is racked twice during barrel-aging and gently filtered just prior to bottling. Aged for 12-16 months in oak, depending on the vintage.

Bottle ShopThis opens with aromas of vanilla, ripe red fruits and hints of baking spices. On the palate the flavors of savory herbs, dark cherry, spices and sweet oak are really delicious. The tannins are silky smooth, and a touch of fresh acidity balances this wine, making it food friendly, and not too heavy. This is a widely appealing style of high quality California Cab that everyone who spends $12 - 16 should be drinking.
