Not too sweet, but never bitter, this grenache-forward Rosé is clean and aromatic with a touch of strawberry and hints of Bing cherry. The dynamic flavors are accented with savory herbal and white floral notes that make it crisp and elegant, perfect for sipping by the pool, serving at a barbecue, or toasting over a candlelit dinner.
Appearance: Bright, pale salmon color medium viscosity with slow forming clear tears.
Aroma: Aromatic with complex red fruit including strawberry, cherry and a little cranberry, yellow and tart red apple, purple and white flowers, and slight herbal notes.
Palate: Moderate bodied with apple, subtle red cherry and strawberry fruit with chamomile on the entry. The mid-palate is fresh with sustained apple, red fruit and herbal flavors and barely noticeable tannins that add textural complexity and a touch of savory flavor. The finish shows
continued fruit and herbal character with subtle floral notes of lilac and citrus flower.
Food Pairing – The graceful texture and clean finish make this wine delightful all on its own, but it plays well with a range of foods. The fruit flavors complement light bites such as an arugula and goat cheese salad, or fresh bruschetta while the balanced texture holds its own with savory dishes including grilled salmon, watermelon salad, or a truffle burger.
About Justin Winery
OUR VINEYARDS – We planted our first vineyard back in 1981 with a mission to make world-class Bordeaux-style blends. Since then, we’ve expanded both our knowledge of viticulture in this unique region as well as our acreage.
SOIL – Rich in fossilized limestone from eons of marine deposits, JUSTIN’s soil is ideally suited to creating big, Bordeaux-style reds. The limestone “stresses” the vines, producing grapes that fully express their varietal character.
CLIMATE – Paso Robles’ distinctive microclimate offers the widest day-night temperature swings of any grape-growing region in California. The hot days allow the grapes to develop intense flavor, while the cool nights create great structure and balance.
OUR WINEMAKING PHILOSOPHY
At JUSTIN, we combine traditional Old World methods—like hand-harvesting and small-barrel aging in French oak—with New World technology. For example: the “Air Knife,” an ingenious process invented by our winemakers, boosts grape quality and efficiency.
Once the grapes are harvested, our winemakers—some of the best in the business—gather to sort, select, age, taste, blend and decide what goes into every bottle.
