Stop overpaying for wine!

2009 Justin 14.5% $23

Fairly complex and aromatic on the nose, with notes of red currant and pomegranate accented by cedar, cocoa and fennel seed. This is rich and seamless, with real depth on the palate. The tannins are rather muscular and a bit dry, but the fruit is there to cover them. Lots of plummy fruit accented with black berry tones and creamy vanilla crème brûlée notes adding complexity. The fennel seed returns on the back end, along with cedar oak spice. The finish is cut a bit short by the load of tannin, but this does show a nice combination of intensity, freshness of flavors and balance. 89pts

    You can find the Liberty School at World Market in California for $10-12, which makes it a great gift for friends who like wine and aren't snooty--also can take it to a dinner when you aren't sure if the wine you bring will be opened. Or, if you don't fear palate burnout, you can treat it like a daily drinker and have really solid Cab any night you like. Really a good bargain, IMO--why buy Chilean when you can have this?
