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 2021 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.
Bright with a deep ruby core turning pink at the rim, with moderate tearing that slightly stains the glass.
Aromatic with red and black raspberries, vanilla, dried spices, tobacco, and savory soy sauce notes.
Moderately full-bodied with smooth blackberry preserves and red currant on entry, leading to a midpalate accented with dried herbs, bay leaves, and cardamom spice notes that are supported by light tannins and balancing acidity. The finish is long with lingering notes of black tea, spice, and hibiscus tea.
Stainless steel closed-top tanks with UV43 yeast and twice-daily pump-overs
Barrel-aged for 18 months in neutral French oak
