I don't remember the first time that I tried this wine. However, it has been one that a gravitate to when I see it on a menu while dining out. It has such a great balance that I don't worry about whether or not it will pair well with my meal. It always does!
This also makes a fantastic gift wine! I have both given and received a bottle of Justin Cabernet and it's always a solid choice. So solid, that they are celebrating 30 years of crafting this wine.

The deep purple of this wine is just beautiful. Lots of cherry and berry aromas with a hint of coco other baking spices. Medium bodied, though pushing to toward full. The flavors on the palate are similar to the nose with the addition of strawberry and some oak and vanilla. Longer finish full of baking spices.
