2009 Justin Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon
Wine & Spirits
An earthy cabernet, this is full bodied with simple, stout tannins over fresh dark berry fruit. Those tannins have the scent of potting soil, needing roast lamb to bring the fruit forward.
Does what California does so well with Cabernet, ripening the fruit and developing delicious berry and cherry flavors. Oak, of course, brings the usual sweetly smoked toast and vanilla notes to this softly tannic wine. Drink it now.
Justin's 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is generous and easy-to-drink, with loads of ripe red and black fruits, meaty undertones and a dollop of spice. The tannins are definitely perceptible, but they give this otherwise juicy red some nice texture, perfect for fancy burgers, braises and stews.
