Nice smooth cabernet ... at little rough after opening but decanting helped. Rich dark fruit with a bit of oak in the nose. Smooth tannins with a medium finish.

Super concentrated. Defined vanilla and hint of oak on the nose with a distant rose petal. Decanting doesn't hurt it. Just enough tannin and lots of smooth black fruit. Very nice.

Nice mid-weight cab, with an oaky old-world taste. The acidity and oak balanced each other well, I thought. Tasted more expensive than it was, to me.

Not bad, but I tend to like dessert wines and this one didn't wow me.

A really nice cabernet. Was given during a holiday open house, and will purchase one to keep. Very smooth and easy.

Justins 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is dark red with a crimson hue. Aromas of raspberry, bing cherry, mushroom, and an assortment of spice, vanilla and leather make up the nose. A soft, fruit forward entry is accented by a touch of vanilla. The mid palate balances acidity and structure to produce a velvety mouth feel found commonly in JUSTIN wines. The finish contains soft, yet prevalent tannins with hints of caramel, cedar and toasted oak. Food Pairing: Properly seasoned roasted, grilled, sautéed meats, poultry & game. Dishes: Lamb Loin with Red Wine Essence, Filet Mignon, Roasted Duck Breast Cheeses: Sharp Cheddar, Abbaye de Belloc, Danish Blue, Aged Gouda, Reblochon, San Andreas

More elegant than powerful, this Cab is medium-bodied and dry, with a silky texture. It has pleasant cherry, red currant, cola, violet, pepper and spice flavors, and is quite food-friendly for a Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now.

Mainly Cabernet Sauvignon, with some Cabernet Franc, and Merlot, this wine is exuberantly rich and sweet in ripe blackberry, black cherry and chocolate fruit. Smoky oak plays a crucial role, in both flavors and texture. Itrsquo;s a very pretty, polished wine, elegant and balanced and ready to drink now. Production was a hefty 11,000 cases.

Dense, purple-black color that indicating extraordinarily high extract and viscosity this highly sought after red blend shows dark fruit, inviting oak notes of cinnamon and nutmeg and touches of black pepper and cocoa. This is an intense and powerful wine, worthy of cellaring.

Well-made, showing complex herb, currant, plum and berry flavors that are ripe and vibrant, with firm yet integrated tannins and a fruity aftertaste. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Drink now through 2009.

A Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated Bordeaux blend, starting with lush, inviting new oak, cassis, sweet thyme, vanilla and mushroom aromas. Turns subtle, supple and elegant in the mouth, powerful and refined. Dry and long, this wine finishes with class and distinction.


External Review

A smooth, silky texture supports ripe black cherry, blackberry, cassis, bay leaf, sage, anise, toast and chocolate flavors. Moderate acidity and firm, ripe tannins provide structure. The berry and herb flavors echo on on the long finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes The wine has dark ruby color. A bittersweet chocolate note accentuates jammy fruit aromas of raspberry, sweet cherry and plum. The wine is lush and sumptuous on the palate with chocolate, cherry and rich plum flavors. The wine can be drunk now but will further evolve over the next 5 to 7 years. A bottle cellared over 5 years should always be decanted. Enjoy! An open bottle develops a nutty, tawny port character over time and under proper care may be kept for up to 6 months.
