This Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon is always enjoyable. Showing black fruits with chocolate notes and wood, licorice, vanilla and peppercorn.

Fruit forward and spicy.

Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Nice, and easy drinking with mild complexity and a nice mouthfeel.

Nice length on the finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

I've had multiple vintages of this Cabernet, and this 2017 vintage seems to be a little better.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

Very happy to try the new vintage. 17 doesn’t disappoint, 90 points out the gate with fruit and vanilla and tannins nicely balanced. I think some age will greatly help, but as always this wine shines, and it’s a great value too.

This is turning out to be a great vintage for Justin. Let it open up a little bit and it’s extraordinary for the price point. Coming out of a half bottle, because the winery hasn’t released the 750’s yet. Shows wonderful complex fruit with ample tannic structure. Not much acidity going on, but will be a great vintage to drink now. Haven’t seen as good as a vintage as the 2017, since the 2013 vintage.

One of my favorite everyday drinking cabs. Pairs well with filet mignon or pasta.

First tasting of the ‘16 vintage. Still young but doesn’t disappoint. Fruit forward and smooth, but perhaps lacking some structure and firmness. To be revisited as it is so early.

Consistent vintage to vintage. A bit jammy in the finish for my taste, but still layered and restrained for Cali Cab.

If you are holding this 2006 Justin, now is the time. This wine is in its prime right now. Fabulous. Rich with fruit, bursting with flavor.

Gets even better as it opens up. Very nice on this mild DC summer evening.
