A stylish take on a venerable Paso Robles classic
About the Wine
With this limited bottling, we show the versatility of this venerable Paso Robles classic grape variety. The 2020 JUSTIN Zinfandel shows the fruit, savory spice, and texture that fans of this grape variety crave combined with complexity and balance that is a JUSTIN hallmark.
Deep purple/ruby core that lightens toward the rim of the glass, with thick, moderately stained tears.
Aromatic, with brambly blackberry, raspberry, and dusty red cherry with cracked black pepper, black olive notes, and just a touch of oak and barrel spice.
Dry, full-bodied, and balanced on the palate, with red and black berry, red cherry, cranberry, and subtle vanilla on entry. The midpalate shows oak accents with cracked pepper and rhubarb notes. The finish is clean and moderately long, showing bold but finely textured tannins and sustained fruit along with camphor and herbal notes.
Stainless steel closed-top tanks with UV43 yeast and twice-daily pump-overs
Barrel-aged for 19 months in neutral French oak
