Justin Vineyards & Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles Obtuse 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The wine has dark ruby color. A bittersweet chocolate note accentuates jammy fruit aromas of raspberry, sweet cherry and plum. The wine is lush and sumptuous on the palate with chocolate, cherry and rich plum flavors. The wine can be drunk now but will further evolve over the next 5 to 7 years. A bottle cellared over 5 years should always be decanted. Enjoy! An open bottle develops a nutty, tawny port character over time and under proper care may be kept for up to 6 months.

For those who enjoy lighter, sweeter, fruitier ports, this is a must have in your cellar. A wonderful sipping wine after a delicious meal, and great to pair with chocolate or citrus fruits.

Mainly Cab, with some of the Portuguese varieties in there. Fairly sweet, with residual sugar of about 12.5%. High alcohol (19%). Not particularly compelling, but clean and balanced.
