Review: 2020 Justin Savant Paso Robles

Products You May Like

Savant is a mix of cabernet sauvignon (45%) and syrah (55%) from Paso Robles-based Justin, and it’s one of many much less generally seen wines from the model. Clearly designed for winter climate given its burly varietal composition, let’s see if we what magic the 2020 classic has to supply.

Sweeter than I used to be anticipating, this wine layers its currant and cherry core with highly effective notes of vanilla, then layers of gingerbread and toasted cinnamon sticks. I’ve to say it evokes neither cabernet nor syrah — and notably not the latter — coming throughout with an exuberance that I affiliate extra with zinfandel — or, given the 15% abv, maybe ruby Port. Enduring notes of brown sugar, infused with baking spices, give the end an surprising size that by no means appears to give up, vanilla lasting the longest throughout the fade-out.
