2015 Hope Rhône Blend

Hope Rhône Blend is Aver Family Vineyards’ tribute to Châteauneuf-du-Pape, one of Vigneron John Aver’s favorite wines.  Through all of the challenges we’ve faced, hope, a blend of optimism and blind faith, has prevailed. It has enabled us to fulfill our dreams, and it our great privilege to offer it to you.

Tasting Notes: Aromas of anise, dark plum and blackberry open to underlying notes of black cherry, mocha and vanilla.  The palate features black cherry with undertones of truffle and black pepper.  The elegant tannic structure leads to a long finish, ending with notes of dark chocolate, making this a great wine to pair with a special meal.

Food Pairings: Great with grilled steaks and lamb chops.  Also pairs well with hearty braised dishes such as beef stew or lamb shanks especially those with a mushroom or pepper sauce. Vegetarian options include roasted root vegetables or eggplant.

 Wine Enthusiast, December 2018 - 92 Points - Editors' Choice

This blend of 55% Grenache, 27% Syrah, 15% Mourvèdre, 2% Petite Sirah and 1% Carignan is a strong showing for this historic—but only recently revived—region between Morgan Hill and Gilroy. Blackberry, lavender, elderflower buds and soil show on the nose. The structure is quite firm, holding elegant flavors of dark berry, white pepper and strong acidity.
