Beautiful Cab and Merlot blend, opened up quickly. Powerful but with nice structure, smooth and silky.

Warm baking spices jump out of the glass, reminiscent of the aromas that fill a room after opening an oven door with freshly baked pie. Pie motif continues through the palate with well integrated baking spice and cherry reduction flavors giving way to a well sustained and satisfying finish.

Pours bright red aromas of tobacco and dust with a blast of blackberry. Flavors of cigar box earth and raspberry. Low acid with a somewhat quick finish. Be careful what you pair with this. We have a mild flavored pasta dish and the food is overpowering the wine.

Took some time to open. Worth it when it did.

Fairly ripe, dark raspberry tones and interesting nose of cigar smoke and roasted herbs. The feminine counterpoint to the other Justin label, Isosceles.
