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 2020 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.
