Review: 2009 Justin Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles

Share

This Paso Robles winemaker is a staple of wine lists and most wine markets, and Justin now commands a huge footprint, boasting sales in 23 countries. The lion’s share of its production is still this Cabernet Sauvignon, which comprises nearly half of its bottle count.

The wine itself is on the lighter side for a Cabernet, and for better or worse the flavor profile isn’t terribly complex. More berry-forward than most Cabs, it’s got an undercoating of violets and other very light floral notes, but for the most part it lets the fruit do the talking. Tannins are all but absent here. Ready to drink now, I wouldn’t cellar this wine for more than a few additional years.

The rating is in line with my pre-release barrel tasting rating.
