Austin Hope Troublemaker 10 Red Blend NV
Troublemaker has a deep ruby-black color with sweet fruit aromas of boysenberry and blueberry, along with pipe tobacco, menthol, clove and vanilla.
On the palate, the entry is lush with vibrant red and black fruit flavors. Sweet baking spices and herbal notes add to the complexity of the wine, while the finish is long and juicy with lingering notes of coffee and vanilla.
Wine AdvocateA big crowd-pleasing and quaffable effort that's a blend of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, Petite Sirah and Zinfandel, the latest N.V. Troublemaker is loaded with sweet blackberry, charred meat, tobacco and vanilla. Full-bodied, rich and loaded with fruit, it is a straightforward party wine that should be consumed over the coming year or two.
Wine EnthusiastMade in the velvety-soft, rather fruit-forward wine style that's so popular these days. It's got flavors of cherry jam, brown sugar and sweet buttered toast. The blend is of Rhône varieties plus Zinfandel.
