Beautifully balanced, with attractive aromas of black fruit and spice, this smooth, ready to drink Cabernet is made with the same care afforded the highest quality, traditionally-made Bordeaux wines. Our grapes are hand-picked and then sorted by the berry for consistent quality and flavor. JUSTIN Cabernet Sauvignon spends more than a year in traditional small oak barrels to impart a depth and complexity to the wine that expresses the influence of the ancient limestone soils and unique climate of Paso Robles.
Bright with a deep ruby core and violet rim. On the nose it presents an attractive mix of red and black fruit of currants, cherry and blackberry layered with spicy notes of anise, vanilla and with a subtle cedar character from an American oak influence. Complex with bright fruit of blackcurrant, cherry, and boysenberry mixed with licorice and subtle cedar notes on a long finish along with some mineral and cherry candy notes supported by smooth rounded tannins
"In its newly designed bottle, this Justin's "Ambassador Wine," which leads to the winery's iconic Justification and Isosceles wines. While still young, it gets rounder by the minute, so just imagine its beauty over the years. Bright is the first word that comes to mind, washed with blackberry and cedar spice. A great value for a labor-intensive wine that starts with hand-picked and -sorted berries and spends 18 months in 225-liter American oak barrels."
Smooth & Supple
Well balanced and lots of nice fruit; just big enough; very enjoyable
This is an excellent wine at an amazingly reasonable price point. Pretty sure we paid just $24 per bottle, and it really drinks like a $60-$70 wine. But then, that's what we've come to expect from any wine from Justin - we bought a case of their Sav Blanc recently for $16/bottle, and it is as good as any we've ever had. Justin is swiftly turning into our favorite brand.
Big & Bold
Nice and oaky.
Smooth & Supple
Super smooth, easy drinking. nothing wrong with this bottle at all, but it's not super interesting nor complex.
