Winemaker's Notes:

Deep ruby red, almost opaque core with bright, youthful violet rim. Bold black fruit-cassis nose, sweet vanilla note from American oak. Dry and mouthfilling, raspberry and blackberry flavors. Plush, round and dense, with modest tannins and a long, generous finish.

Great Cabernet in the $25 price range! Wonderful fruit on the nose and great strawberry and coffee flavors on the palate. Super easy to drink! This may be my new go to Cabernet in this price range. Cheers!

Smooth and silky yet spicy too. The fruit seems a bit complex making it hard to peg what fruit flavors are coming out. It's almost as if it is a blend of many different things rolled into one.It reminds us of a dark cherry pie we had recently that was really rich and not sweet.

The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon is a reasonably good value. Its deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by a lovely nose of plums, raisins, black currants, and spicy oak. Fleshy, with attractive purity, richness, and density, this complex, high quality Cabernet Sauvignon should drink well for 5-10 years.

Yet another stellar vintage in a string of odd-year dandies. This primary wine of our production offers a merge of red and black fruits, delicate spiciness from carefully selected American oak barrels, and deep brooding opaque color. A meaty entry gives way to a generous back palate of supple but not shy tannins, a graceful flow across the palate, and a fine, debonaire finish. You'll think you outkicked the coverage on this fine bottle. - Winery

Restrained, crouching monster. An almost opaque ruby red; unfiltered, hand harvested with a whopping 15% alcohol that you would never know is there (unless you finish the bottle), this Cabernet needs breathing time. After a few minutes in the glass, ripe black cherry, black currant and tobacco aromas begin to unfurl. The body is densely packed with dark berry fruits and dusty tannins. Amazingly balanced, the wine never comes across as hot. The finish is long and chewy mdash; an endurance champion. Rumor has it that this single barrel bottling, especially set aside for the Premier Group, is the same Cab destined for Justinrsquo;s Reserve label.

The 2007 Justin Paso Robles Cabernet is dark red with a violet hue. The nose is complex, offering aromas of cherry, allspice, cinnamon, leather and a touch of forest floor. The palate is soft upon entry, yielding a multitude of red and black fruit flavors that are accented by vanilla, caramel and a hint of butterscotch from the new American oak. This young Cabernet Sauvignon is approachable immediately.

Smooth, with a stalky vanilla bean and red currant core of flavors that offers appealing up-front complexity and a solid value at this price. Drink now through 2008.

Dark purple with a surrounding outline of cherry red. Aromas of black cherry, currant and vanilla jump out of the glass. A soft, delicate entry is woven into a long, intense palate that features flavors of blueberry, cassis and a touch of spice. Supple, ripe tannins with a hint of chocolate hover on the finish.
