About the Wine
A classic French Rhône blend (GSM), but with a JUSTIN twist as bold Paso Robles Syrah imparts rich intensity. With it’s limestone rich soil and unique climate, Paso Robles is an ideal location for creating Rhone style wines. Trilateral is a brilliant example, the three varieties Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre are handpicked and hand sorted to create a wine that’s full of ripe fruit, yet is elegant and nuanced.
Varietal Composition: 54% Syrah, 28% Grenache, 18% Mourvèdre.
Appearance: Clear and bright with a medium purple/ruby core, slightly lighter at the rim, moderate plus viscosity and slow forming, moderately stained tears.
Aroma: Very aromatic with ripe blackberry, cherry and mixed berry fruit, attractive barrel spice and oak, cracked pepper, red licorice, dried herbs, salumi, leather and a touch of camphor.
Palate: Dry, full bodied with a mix of black berries and cherry with vanilla and oak notes on entry. The mid-palate shows attractive savory elements of cracked pepper, smoke, leather and firm fine tannins that hold things together nicely through a long, balanced finish with hints of cured meat.
The 2018 TRILATERAL is a full-bodied wine with ripe black fruit balanced by attractive savory elements that makes it a perfect pairing with flavorful food pairing options like moussaka, or a roasted rack of lamb simply seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic, and rosemary.
