  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 89

    Firm and trim, with a pleasant band of earth, spice, dried berry and hazelnut scents that are well-proportioned, turning complex. Drink now through 2010. 3,000 cases made.

    Justin's 2004 Syrah exhibits lovely blackberry fruit infused with a smoky, earthy, loamy soil component. This medium-bodied, fleshy Syrah will offer attractive drinking over the next 3-4 years.

  • Justin Winery is a family owned and operated winery making estate grown and produced wines. The property was founded in 1981 by Justin and Deborah Baldwin when they planted their 160 acres to the major Bordeaux varieties and created their Estate vineyard.

    Their desire is to make world class wines that reflect the unique soils and climate of their Paso Robles property. Emphasis is placed on making Bordeaux-style blends and single varieties, combining Old World tradition with New World techniques.

    California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
