Justin Savant Syrah-Cabernet Paso Robles 2007

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.

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.

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

The 1999 Isosceles (an unfiltered blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 17% Merlot) reveals copious quantities of earthy black currant, fig, and charcoal-infused fruit with a touch of new oak in the background. Full-bodied, with plenty of muscle as well as depth, it has a similar weight, but less complexity that the Reserve bottling. This promising 1999 can be drunk now as well as over the next 10ndash;15 years.

Smooth, rich, elegant and refined, with a tight, sleek focus on ripe, vibrant, even juicy red currant, black cherry and wild berry flavors that are impeccably balanced, ending with a long, complex finish that keeps the fruity flavors reverberating. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Drink now through 2015.

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. It's a very pretty, polished wine, elegant and balanced and ready to drink now. Production was a hefty 11,000 cases.

Aromas of sweet plum, currant and a touch of coconut lead to a ripe, rich, fleshy yet firm band of Cabernet flavors, with a mix of cherry, blackberry and a a touch of mocha, finishing with firm, ripe, integrated tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petite Verdot and Malbec. Best from 2006 through 2012.

Inky ruby. Impressively complex bouquet of cassis, cherry-cola, potpourri, graphite and Asian spices; lots going on here. Juicy, finely etched dark fruit flavors are sweetened by a suave vanillin oak quality and firmed by silky tannins. The spiciness carries through the long, seductively sweet finish. Showing very nicely today.

Dark, ripe and concentrated, with complex plum, wild blackberry and black cherry fruit thatrsquo;s well-focused and persistent through the finish, where the tannins are ripe and integrated, pushing into blackberry jam. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Drink now through 2009. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
