Winemaker Notes

Deep ruby/purple with black hue at the core and moderately stained tears on the glass. Very aromatic with ripe black, red cherry and blackcurrant fruit, vanilla and cinnamon spice with cedar, autumn leaves, oak, graphite, red licorice and cocoa. Full bodied with ripe red and black fruit and baking spice on entry with oak and dusty tobacco notes joining on the mid-palate and balanced acidity keeping things elegant and fresh. The finish is long and complex with mouth filling, fine tannins, lingering cherry fruit, barrel spice and oak with subtle floral notes.

Full bodied but lively and complex on the palate, the 2017 Justification is a versatile food pairing wine to a wide range of dishes from herb crusted pork loin roasted with root vegetables, a pan seared duck breast, or a filet mignon with a thyme and red wine sauce.

Blend: 65% Cabernet Franc, 35% Merlot

About Justin Winery

OUR VINEYARDS – We planted our first vineyard back in 1981 with a mission to make world-class Bordeaux-style blends. Since then, we’ve expanded both our knowledge of viticulture in this unique region as well as our acreage.

SOIL – Rich in fossilized limestone from eons of marine deposits, JUSTIN’s soil is ideally suited to creating big, Bordeaux-style reds. The limestone “stresses” the vines, producing grapes that fully express their varietal character.

CLIMATE – Paso Robles’ distinctive microclimate offers the widest day-night temperature swings of any grape-growing region in California. The hot days allow the grapes to develop intense flavor, while the cool nights create great structure and balance.

OUR WINEMAKING PHILOSOPHY

At JUSTIN, we combine traditional Old World methods—like hand-harvesting and small-barrel aging in French oak—with New World technology. For example: the “Air Knife,” an ingenious process invented by our winemakers, boosts grape quality and efficiency.

Once the grapes are harvested, our winemakers—some of the best in the business—gather to sort, select, age, taste, blend and decide what goes into every bottle.
