Justin Vineyards & Winery Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Yet another stellar vintage in a string of odd-year dandies. This primary wine of our production offers a merge of red and black fruits, delicate spiciness from carefully selected American oak barrels, and deep brooding opaque color. A meaty entry gives way to a generous back palate of supple but not shy tannins, a graceful flow across the palate, and a fine, debonaire finish. You'll think you outkicked the coverage on this fine bottle.
Two things create a great wine, the best soil and the best climate. Justin Vineyards is blessed with both. Their soil was created five million years ago, when fossil-laden seabeds were uplifted to form Paso Robles' Santa Lucia Mountains. This land, rich in limestone, and high in alkalinity, combines with the unique microclimate to produce grapes that fully express their varietal character. Justin Vineyards employs artisanal techniques typically reserved for the world's most revered labels. Grapes are handpicked and sorted by the berry for consistent quality and flavor. Then the wine spends more than a year in small oak barrels to impart depth and character. The result? This Cabernet Sauvignon, a beautifully balanced wine with attractive aromas of black fruit and spic. Try it and make your own discovery.
