Brimming with an unpalatable shock of alcohol, thick, juicy gobs of overripe blackberry and an avalanche of new oak chips in this monstrosity of a wine is no better then the $8 Apothic Inferno positioned on a case stack next to the waste bin. Hats off to the greed of billionaire owners (Resnicks) that clear cut hundreds of acres of mature, natural oak tree habitat to make way for vines to create this utter disgrace of California grape juice that follows in the trends of Parkerized excrement. If character, style, grace, food pairing, honestly anything other than a quick and distasteful buzz are what you’re looking for I would still steer wide of this waste of shelf space. Do your research, learn about the owners and their run in with the law in 2016. We are all paying dearly and will never forget as long as this wine exists under the name Justin or any of its affiliates. It didn’t even remotely improve my experience at the laundromat. This bottle was gifted to me... just to be clear it’s not worth spending a dollar over $1 to try this. Boycott Justin!!!

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.

$22

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.
