Food Pairings for Justin Savant Syrah-Cabernet Paso Robles
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.
Not bad, but I tend to like dessert wines and this one didn't wow me.
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.
A really nice cabernet. Was given during a holiday open house, and will purchase one to keep. Very smooth and easy.
External Reviews for Justin Savant Syrah-Cabernet Paso Robles
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
A wonderfully rich and complex wine, smooth and seamless, with layers of ripe currant, black cherry and blackberry, with shades of anise, herb and earth. Finishes with just the right amount of acidity and tannin to sustain its long, lingering finish. Best from 2003 through 2012.
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.
Intense, with chunky, tannic, herb-laced currant and leathery blackberry flavors. Turns dry and tannic. Best from 2002 through 2007.
Absolutely delicious, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (mostly), Cabernet Franc and Merlot is brimming with ripe and juicy currant, black cherry, wild berry, plum and anise flavors that are complex, deep and polished. Finishes long and flavorfully. Best from 2002 through 2012.
Dramatically true to its nature, Isosceles is a textbook triangle of two parts fruit and equal measures of tannin and acidity to form a well-balanced wine. Pronounced aromatics reveal attractive red currant, blueberry, dark chocolate and cedar complexities while the fruit is fully ripe and heavily laden with intense flavors that end with immense power and a long, rewarding finish.
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.
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.
