2015 / Red

2015 FOCUS

For years, JUSTIN has been known for producing iconic Bordeaux-styled wines. Not to be typecast, we conceived FOCUS, a handcrafted, limited production wine that expresses the now world famous potential of Paso Robles to produce the highest quality New World Syrah. For the 2015 FOCUS, we selected the best of the best Syrah fruit of the vintage and released a only few hundred cases of this remarkable wine that showcases our ability to craft exceptional wines in a variety of styles.

TASTING NOTES

Appearance: Nearly opaque purple ruby core with moderate plus intensity toward the rim with slow-forming, well stained tears in the glass.

Aroma: Aromatic and complex with ripe black fruit of blackberry, dusty cherry and blueberry with sweet spice of vanilla with cinnamon and savory spice of cracked pepper, with smoky, meaty notes and leather.

Palate: Bold, full bodied and complex with ripe black fruit of berries and cherry combined with baking spice on the entry with smoky, savory elements of dusty leather, tobacco leaf and cracked pepper and subtle notes of cured salumi emerging as the mid-palate continues. The exceptionally long finish is clean, complex and balanced, layered with continually evolving fruit and savory flavors supported by dense chewy tannins and a little cocoa. We suggest a couple years of aging after release to show its full, complex potential on its own, but if you have a few bottles of 2015 FOCUS on hand, you might what to enjoy a bottle earlier with a robust winter dish like a slowly cooked beef ragu, or braised lamb shanks with polenta for a special treat while you are waiting for the others to evolve.
