Justin Vineyards & Winery Cabernet-Syrah Blend Paso Robles Savant 2008

Member Review by Wine Fire:

A fragrant medley of spices, coffee, chocolate, black and red fruits emerges and delights at first pour. Notes of smoked bacon and toast appear intermittently. The palate opens to ripe, bright fruits, including cherry, raspberry, plum and blackberry driven by a spicy zing that amplifies the fruits like a trumpet, all supported by a lush mouthfeel, with undertones of cocoa, cobbler and cappuccino, and a long, lively finish. Blackberries and cherries linger in pleasant counterpoint as the palate dries and the zing fades. A wonderful, full-bodied wine that keeps its grip for a full three hours.

Love, love, love this wine. Great lush berry on the front, finishes with a little spice and chocolate.
