Cellar for up to 9 years. No need to decant before serving.

This Paso Robles winery is named after founder Justin Baldwin who was one of the first to start making premium wines here in the early 1980s. Justin recognised the exceptional potential of the local terroir with its fine limestone soils which produces very elegant and structured wines capable of ageing for decades. Justin’s project became globally-recognised in 1997 when Wine Spectator magazine selected his flagship Isosceles Cabernet Sauvignon as the sixth-best wine in the world.

This fine Cabernet is the little brother to the Isosceles and showcases both Justin’s winemaking skill and the quality of the Paso Robles terroir. All the grapes are hand-picked and sorted before vinification, with the young wine spending over a year ageing in oak barrels before it is deemed ready for bottling.

The result is a robust, well-structured Cabernet that’s bursting with crushed wild berries, dark cherries, sweet tobacco and toasty oak from the barrels. On the palate there’s a full body, firm yet smooth tannins, and ample luscious dark fruit which linger on the tongue. The powerful yet balanced flavour profile make this a great partner for a classic steak sandwich with fries, barbecued ribs, or even an al fresco picnic of charcuterie, cheeses, and a fresh baguette.
