Justin Cabernet Sauvignon 2018, Paso Robles, California

100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Paso Robles. “With attractive aromas of black fruit and spice, this smooth, ready-to-drink Cabernet Sauvignon is made in Paso Robles with the same care as the highest quality, traditionally crafted Bordeaux styled wines. Our grapes are hand-picked and sorted by-the-berry for consistent quality and flavor. Justin Cabernet Sauvignon then spends thirteen months in traditional small oak barrels to impart depth and complexity, highlighting the exceptional balance of flavors and textures that the unique climate and soils of Paso Robles add to the classic Cabernet character in this exceptional wine.” Appearance: Deep ruby-purple core with a lighter rim and slightly stained, tears forming on the glass.
Aroma: Aromatic with ripe black cherry and cassis with dusty tobacco leaf, baking spice, oak, leather, camphor and hint of subtle purple flowers. Palate: Dry, almost full-bodied on entry with ripe black cherry leading black currant and red berry fruit, with vanilla and cinnamon spice and oak accents leading a mid-palate with sustained black and red fruit, dried autumn leaf and subtle camphor notes. The finish is moderately long and fresh with lingering fruit, oak and baking spice framed by firm, balanced tannins.
