    Ripe For Cabernet

    “Many of the bright spots over the years have come from JUSTIN, which is credited with setting the bar for Paso Robles Cabernet. Founded in 1981 by Justin Baldwin, the flagship wine, a Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend called ISOSCELES, regularly earns outstanding scores. A turning point came in 2000, when the 1997 ISOSCELES was named No. 6 in Wine Spectator’s Top 100. After that, vintners started to look at Paso Robles more seriously.” —MaryAnn Worobiec

    “‘This is our flagship line and what we’re known for,’ Shirley said. ‘In fact the brand was founded on ISOSCELES, a “Left Bank” Bordeaux-style blend, with the isosceles triangle representing the three varietals that go into it: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.’” —Richard Carlton Hacker
