It’s Wednesday, so that means wine! I first tried JUSTIN Cabernet Sauvignon at a restaurant a couple of years ago. I loved it instantly but thought it was a bit pricey, after all it was a restaurant price. Lucky me, I found that Costco sells it and for only $20.99/bottle! Yes, I would say that’s on the more expensive side, but it makes for a great hostess gift, gift to your doctor to say thanks for taking care of me and my baby, or a celebration bottle.
This cab is very smooth and the hints of a ripe cherry and coffee are apparent and a perfect combination. The wine maker suggests pairing this wine with pasta or grilled hamburgers when at home. We just happened to be enjoying grilled burgers this evening so it was definitely the perfect combination!
Tasting notes from the vintner include:
“AROMA: An attractive mix of red and black cherry with blackcurrant, cinnamon, cocoa, cedar and purple flowers.
PALATE: Medium body, with a complex mix of red and black fruit of cherries and currants, with cinnamon, cocoa, and a hint of violet in the background. The finish is long and crisp, with cherry, mineral and floral components balanced by soft tannins.”
