Justin Vineyards & Winery Red Bordeaux Blend Paso Robles Justification 2009
94 points James Suckling: Love the nose to this with dark fruits and cigar tobacco on the nose. Hints of milk chocolate. Full bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, long finish. This is a very beautiful wine indeed. Decadent and refined at the same time. Unfiltered. Made from 67% Cabernet Franc and 33% Merlot. Better in 2013. (11/15/11)
External Reviews for Justin Vineyards & Winery Red Bordeaux Blend Paso Robles Justification
This has become one of JUSTIN s iconic wines in a very brief time. It is a unique blend inspired by the Bordeaux "right-bank" regions of St. Emilion and Pomerol, where very little cabernet sauvignon is grown due to soil and drainage conditions. JUSTIN has always been "justifiably" proud of the excellent cabernet franc on our property, and our small plots of merlot give it just the right richness of fruit in a serious and cellarable wine.
Dark mahogany color with a medium dark red rim. The robust nose offers cedar, bakers chocolate and red cherry, framed by a touch of red currant. Dense yet soft on the palate, there are fine-grained tannins and a long, fruit-and-wood-driven finish. S... Alex Lallos.
