Justin "Justification" Paso Robles 2016
Appearance: Dark ruby purple core with blue/black secondary hue, a medium rim with thick tears showing slight staining on the glass. Aroma: Aromatic and complex with ripe red cherry, black currant and a little berry with vanilla, cinnamon and licorice spice, cedar and graphite notes, oak, leather, dried autumn leaves and a minty hint of camphor. Palate: Moderate-plus to full-bodied, dry, with ripe cherry and cassis mixed with baking spice on entry joined by cedar and oak on the mid-palate with complex savory, herbal elements. The finish is long, balanced, and clean, with returning red and black fruit and perfectly proportioned, fine, mouth-filling tannins.
