Troublemaker is a wink and a nod to the early days, when a young Austin Hope was sent to the vineyards for breaking the rules and making mischief. Who knew a childhood punishment could become a life-long passion and career? Still stirring things up, Troublemaker is all about breaking the rules. The way we see it, rules restrict our ability to create and innovate. Troublemaker is not your father’s wine; bold, youthful, and vibrant, it’s a wine for a new generation of winemakers and wine drinkers.
Comprised of varietals that flourish in Paso Robles’ distinct growing region, Troublemaker consists of Syrah, Grenache, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Mourv?dre. Syrah is the backbone of the wine, setting the stage for a fruit-forward style and a full body. Petite Sirah contributes to the deep ruby color. Sweet and bright red fruit flavors of Grenache blend with the rustic and
lively flavors of the Mourv?dre, while Zinfandel adds its signature zing to round out the blend.
