Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is dark red with a violet hue. Aromas of bing cherry, plumb, all spice, cinnamon, leather, and a touch of forest floor fill the glass. A soft, fruit forward entry combines with balanced acidity and low alcohols to coat your mouth with a multitude of flavors. Layers of red and black fruit segue into a finish accented by vanilla, caramel and a hint of butterscotch from the new American Oak. Soft, but present tannins once again allow this young JUSTIN Cabernet Sauvignon to be approachable immediately.

Pair with properly seasoned roasted, grilled, sautéed meats, poultry and game. Best with dishes such as lamb loin with red wine essence, filet mignon and roasted duck breast. Cheeses that match this wine well are sharp cheddar, Abbaye de Belloc, Danish blue, aged gouda, reblochon and San Andreas.

About Justin:

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.
