About the Wine

After a more than 40-year legacy within Paso Robles, JUSTIN is continuing to make a mark on Californian wine, venturing north with the introduction of our first Pinot Noir. Sourced from our estate vineyards, this Burgundy-inspired wine adds a new perspective on JUSTIN’s longstanding history as a grower and producer of California wine. Touting all the hallmarks of the acclaimed Russian River Valley, this food-friendly Pinot Noir is balanced with bright acidity and ripe fruit, making it the perfect pairing for dinner parties and special occasions.

Tasting Notes

Body

LightMediumFull

Appearance

Deep ruby in color with a purple tinge at the core, lightening to pale ruby at the rim with moderate tearing.

Aroma

Complex and aromatic nose unveiling ripe black cherry, strawberry jam, a touch of forest floor, and savory spice.

Palate

On the palate, the entry is round with ripe black plum, boysenberry, dark cherry, and stewed strawberry leading to bright notes of cranberry. Well-integrated tannins and balanced acidity bolster the ripe fruit nuances that build on the finish and are offset by fall leaves and subtle barrel spice.
