Justin is one of the blue chip wineries of the Paso Robles region, and its wines for late 2018 have all hit the market. Today we look at three of them, plus the 2015 vintage release of Justification to serve as a point of comparison.
Since the early 1980s when Founder Justin Baldwin planted his first Cabernet Sauvignon vines in Paso Robles along California’s acclaimed Central Coast, Cabernet Sauvignon has become one of the region’s premier grape varieties, known for its exceptionally bold and outspoken character. The region’s rich terroir played a key role in JUSTIN’s ability to produce luxury red and Bordeaux-style red blends, which helped the winery become universally known as a top producer of this style in Paso Robles. Following the success of its first 100-percent Cabernet Sauvignon release in 1988, the winery expanded its Cabernet plantings to keep up with the overwhelming consumer demand. Over the next 20 years, these same vines have consistently produced premium quality grapes, earning widespread acclaim for JUSTIN and its Cabernet Sauvignon, one of the most recognized and respected wines to come out of JUSTIN’s world-class luxury portfolio.
