Winemaker's Notes:

Like a flip of the card, a cut of the deck, or a twist of fate, something whimsical this way comes. This California Red Table Wine shows off our best and most interesting lots of 2010 vino, and the blend is bold but with nuance, a collaboration definitely way more fun than its components if bottled alone. We made this wine to prove Cabernet-based blends can pair well with food, and we appraised it for the good times and wherever they may lead. We gave it higher acidity so you can easily pair it with a wider range of cuisines, and we priced it low so you can have glorious times over and over again. Enjoy!

Blend: 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Zinfandel, 7% Cabernet Franc, 3% Merlot

My Notes:

About Just Joshin:

Stein Family Wines makes great wines: all of their brands --Stein Family, Just Joshin, Vaquero -- have won plenty of awards, received great scores, and been given good mention in the media, but that is not what makes them different from all other wine options. Stein Family Wines donates five percent of every sale they make, and those donations go directly to the children of vineyard workers in the form of college scholarships and support funding. Yes, others give a percentage of their profits, but we guarantee the kids see the money whether they're profitable or not.

Why? Because they don't want to make a future for our kids on the backs of others'. It's really that simple. They want kids to see that we can create a future for them, and that part of doing so must be rooted in the community; there is no longer-term sustainability without that. Stein Family Wines' goal is to change the wine business one bottle, one glass, one customer at a time. Why? Because fair is fair.
