Austin Hope Graciano Magnum 2021
We call it the happy accident: due to a nursery error, several Paso Robles plantings of “Mourvèdre” were later identified and re-classified as Graciano—a classic Spanish grape rooted in Rioja. It’s how we gained access to a rare New World selection of Graciano fruit, ultimately creating an Austin Hope cult favorite. With its savory aromatics, racy textures and vibrant wildberry flavors, this is a wine for true connoisseurs.
In the words of Austin Hope, “Experimentation is how we chase perfection”—a mantra that is embodied by our Cellar Select wines.
These ultra-limited releases are born of the Hope Family’s longtime relationships with top local growers, providing us with access to the finest blocks at preferred vineyards across Paso Robles and the Central Coast. Many of these wines originate from small experimental batches that yield some of our most creative, compelling and luxurious offerings, all collected under the banner of Austin Hope Cellar Select.
