Winemaker's Notes

The wine has a medium intensity garnet hue. Notes of earth, vanilla and slightly toasted oak complement strawberry, raspberry and blackcurrant aromas. The wine has a soft entry and medium body with balanced acidity and tannins. Along with strawberry, earth, toasted oak and vanilla flavors already present on the nose, the wine has a cherry nuance and finish. The wine can be drunk now but will further evolve over the next 3 to 5 years. A bottle cellared over 5 years should always be decanted. Enjoy!

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.
