When the staff recommended Justin to go with our steak, it was an quick “yes”. Justin has been on my list to try since the holiday season when it was a recommended at a wine shop (they were out of stock, otherwise I would have tried it sooner).
And, wine tasting in Paso Robles is on my bucket list for the next few years. It was a treat to get a preview of what that trip may hold. (Any excuse to travel to San Luis Obispo area works for me!)
What the Justin winemaker says…
Ruby-red core to a cherry-red rim, this young Cabernet displays generous fruit in the nose. Some sweet black and red fruits, like blackberry, raspberry and fig, mingle with caramel and vanilla from the American oak. The entry is soft, mouth coating and filled with delicious red berry and sweet black plum. The wine itself is dry and palate filling, with a soft but well-structured, velvet finish. Tannins are modest but present in this youthful but approachable Cabernet Sauvignon.
