Beginning with the 1990 vintage, the Hope ranches became the sole source of fruit for Liberty School Cabernet Sauvignon, of which they later became owners. Liberty School is now the second-label for Treana Winery. The Liberty School line has since added a Central Coast Chardonnay, now in its second vintage, and for the first time a Syrah. All Liberty School wines are produced and bottled in Paso Robles, CA., the home of delicious wines that are easy to enjoy.
Liberty School Winery 2001 Chardonnay
We blended fruit from two of the best Chardonnay regions in the state, the Santa Maria Valley and another in Monterey County in the famous Santa Lucia Highlands. There are nuances of Bartlett pear, pineapple and green apples in the nose. The finish is long, balanced and never cloying, due to its healthy acidity.
Liberty School Winery 2000 Syrah
Much of the fruit dedicated to this wine comes from our Treana Estate Vineyard. The wine's nose is brimming with aromas of blackberry brambles, smoked meats and currants. On the palate are flavors of ripe dark cherries, black pepper and wild exotic berries. The wine is medium to full-bodied with an intense color.
Liberty School Winery 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon
The Cabernet Sauvignon fruit that composes this bottling comes from not only Paso Robles, but from other appellations in California as well. This wine has very engaging aromas of blackberry brambles, layered with dark cherry, chocolate and cassis. On the palate, initial softness amplifies in to a warm, supple firmness.
