About the Wine

A classic French Rhône-style blend—Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre (GSM)—but with a JUSTIN twist as bold Paso Robles Syrah imparts rich intensity.

Appearance

Bright with a deep ruby core and fuchsia highlights at the rim. The tears are slow-forming with slight staining on the glass.

Aroma

Black and red currant, dried pomegranate, and ripe huckleberry, with savory herbs, vanilla, cinnamon, red licorice, chalky limestone, dried violet, and oak.

Palate

Full-bodied with complex fruit of red cherry, boysenberry, and blackberry on the entry with sage, toasted cinnamon, and black tea and firm tannins appearing on the midpalate. The moderately long finish features sustained fruit and spice notes with toasted oak and balanced, cleansing acidity.

Fresh Beet Salad

The 2019 TRILATERAL features a complex progression of fruit and savory flavors and a freshness that allows for great versatility with food pairings—from semi-hard cheeses and charcuteries or a garden-fresh beet salad before a meal or heartier entrees like seared duck breast over wild mushroom risotto.
