2019 RIGHT ANGLE
An expressive, eclectic blend
About the Wine
At JUSTIN we pride ourselves on crafting wines that express an elegant Bordeaux-like style such as ISOSCELES and JUSTIFICATION, but we are also eager to explore the potential of the distinctive variety of fruit we can grow here in Paso Robles. Past efforts such as SAVANT and FOCUS have shown that we can play that game, and the effort continues with our offerings of our RIGHT ANGLE vintages. The 2019 RIGHT ANGLE is an expressive, eclectic blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petite Sirah, and Petit Verdot that gives an intriguing mix of dark fruit, spice, savory elements and supporting texture that is sure to please red wine lovers looking for something different at a great price point.

Bright, dark ruby/purple nearly to the rim with thick moderately stained tears on the glass.
Aromatic and complex with black and red cherry, black currant, vanilla, cinnamon, smoked meat, subtle black olive, dried herbs, and dry leather.
Dry and full-bodied, with ripe dark fruit and red fruit accents on entry, with vanilla and oak leading to a complex midpalate showing more savory elements of dusty tobacco leaf and salumi. Purple floral accents lead to a moderately long, clean finish with firm tannins and sustained fruit along with dried herbs, camphor, black olive with oak, and barrel spice. Bold but balanced, with a great combination of fruit, spice, and savory flavors met with mouth-filling texture and freshness on the palate, the 2019 RIGHT ANGLE lives up to this wine’s popular reputation in our lineup.
Stainless steel open- and closed-top tanks with UV43 yeast and twice-daily pump-overs/punch downs
Barrel-aged for 18 months in 25% new American oak
