Winemaker's Notes

The 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon is an intensely fruity, big and full-bodied approachable wine, exhibiting a deep, dark, ruby color. Rich and opulent aromas of cassis and cherry are followed by notes of toasted oak, vanilla and strawberries. Dark fruit aromas translate into ripe black cherry fruit and vanilla notes in the mouth. The wine is full-bodied and velvety, but has substantial structure and tannins, giving the wine balance and aging potential.

Justin and Deborah Baldwin acquired their land in 1981 and planted 72 acres in vineyards that same year. Initially they were wine growers, selling to other wineries. Then, in 1987, they harvested their first grapes bottled under the Justin label. Justin Winery concentrates on two Bordeaux styled red wines: Isoscleles, which is a 100% estate blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc and Justification, a blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Varietals are planted to specific soil types on their hillside vineyards 8 miles from the Pacific Ocean, on the Central Coast.
