Wine Pairing: 2012 JUSTIN Rosé

Our 2012 JUSTIN Rosé is one of the most exciting summer wines that we have ever made. Made in a classic Provençal style, it shows the same beautiful color and sunny complexity of wines made in this style all around the Mediterranean. The important difference though, is that is it made from our keystone grape, cabernet sauvignon! Light, refreshing and dry, this wine will pair fantastically with just about anything you will want to eat this summer and is a wine that you will want to acquire by-the-case so you can always have one chilled and on hand for casual sipping or dining!

Wine Pairing: 2013 Sauvignon Blanc

Our Sauvignon Blanc reflects the diversity of the climates and soils within the Paso Robles AVA that range from the cool, limestone laden Templeton Gap area to the warmer, more river sand influenced eastern vineyards. We’ve combined Sauvignon Blanc we made from vineyards in these unique areas to give our 2011 JUSTIN Sauvignon Blanc a full palate of tropical and citrus fruits balanced by a crisp, refreshing and mineral structure. The result is a wine that is both a refreshing summer aperitif, and a perfect food pairing wine for a wide range of cheeses or seafood dishes.

Wine Pairing: 2010 Reserve Chardonnay

The JUSTIN Reserve Chardonnay is crafted in a style that provides a crisp, refreshing summer wine upon release, but acquires a rich nutty depth over time, evolving into a more textured, classically structured chardonnay after a few years in the cellar. A versatile food pairing wine, this wine is a unique American expression of Chardonnay, combining the character of crisp citrus and green apple of northern Burgundian classics like Chablis with the rich, mouth-filling finish of a Cote de Beaune from the south.
