2014 FOCUS

For years, JUSTIN has been known for producing iconic Bordeaux-style wines. Not to be typecast, we have conceived FOCUS, a handcrafted, limited-production wine that expresses the now world-famous potential of Paso Robles to produce the highest-quality New World Syrah. We have selected from the best of the best in order to release a remarkable Syrah that showcases our ability to craft exceptional wines in a variety of styles.

TASTING NOTES

Appearance: Opaque black core with moderate-intensity purple rim and slow-forming, heavily stained tears.

Aroma: Intense, with bold aromas of blackberry jam, ripe black cherry mingled with sweet baking spice, crushed peppercorn, smoke, leather and a subtle aromatic herbal note.

Palate: Generously full-bodied with layers of lush black fruit on the entry, with black pepper and sweet spice unfolding into a mid- palate that shows smoky, meaty notes with leather and a little camphor as the palate progresses. The finish is very long and layered with continued evolving fruit, spice and savory interaction surrounded by chewy, substantial tannins that balance this bold wine’s flavors and textures, giving it the substance to pair well with hearty winter fare like slow-cooked beef short ribs or a rich lamb stew, and the ability to evolve in the coming years.
