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.

Tasting Notes




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.
