Winemaker Notes & Critical Acclaim:

Dark ruby purple core with blue/black secondary hue, a medium rim with thick tears showing slight staining on the glass. Aromatic and complex with ripe red cherry, black currant and a little berry with vanilla, cinnamon and licorice spice, cedar and graphite notes, oak, leather, dried autumn leaves and a minty hint of camphor. Moderate plus to full bodied, dry, with ripe cherry and cassis mixed with baking spice on entry joined by cedar and oak on the mid-palate with complex savory, herbal elements. The finish is long, balanced and clean, with returning red and black fruit and perfectly proportioned, fine, mouth-filling tannins. The 2016 JUSTIFICATION is elegant with a perfect balance of fruit, savory and textural elements making is a versatile food pairing wine.

The 2016 JUSTIFICATION is elegant with a perfect balance of fruit, savory and textural elements making is a versatile food pairing wine. Try it with a wide range of dishes from Rotissierie Chicken, or Duck Confit, to Entrecote Bordelaise et pomme frites, a classic regional dish from Bordeaux of pan seared steak with a red wine shallot and thyme pan sauce served with crispy fries. Blend: 57% Merlot, 43% Cabernet Franc. - Winemaker Note

This blend of 57% Merlot and 43% Cabernet Franc begins quite subtly on the nose, with aromas of berry, mint and oak. Polished tannins frame the palate, where flavors of black cherry, espresso bean and dried mint arise. - 91 Points Wine Enthusiast

About The Producer:

Justin and Deborah Baldwin acquired their land in 1981 and planted 72 acres in vineyards that same year. Initially, they were wine growers, selling to other wineries. Then, in 1987, they harvested their first grapes bottled under the Justin label. Justin Winery concentrates on two Bordeaux styled red wines: Isoscleles, which is a 100% estate blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc and Justification, a blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Varietals are planted to specific soil types on their hillside vineyards 8 miles from the Pacific Ocean, on the Central Coast.
