Filet Mignon

JUSTIN Cabernet is a medium to full-bodied wine that has aromas of dark fruit, oak and leather, lending itself to pair with heartier fare, red meats on the grill, or comfort foods with red sauces, mushrooms. The JUSTIN Cabernet is very versatile and can easily be enjoyed on its own. However, a great wine should be enjoyed with great food, so sit by the fire and enjoy a glass with cheese or rich chocolate or entertain friends and pair with a tender filet of beef.
