2021 RIGHT ANGLE
An expressive, eclectic blend
About the Wine
At JUSTIN, we pride ourselves on crafting wines in an elegant Bordeaux style, like our ISOSCELES and JUSTIFICATION blends, but we are also eager to explore the potential of other distinct varieties grown here in Paso Robles. Our past efforts include SAVANT and FOCUS, and we continue these offerings with our RIGHT ANGLE vintages. The 2021 RIGHT ANGLE is an expressive, eclectic blend of cabernet, malbec, petite sirah, and petit verdot, creating 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.
