A classic Old World blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot, but with a California twist of lush fruit. You’ll never need a justification for picking up this bottle. Cranberry, black and red currant, and light hints of green bell pepper and smoke combine in lovely layers of flavors. Excellent with baked lentil and garden vegetable dishes, or herb-crusted lamb chops. Food pairing: red meats, Asian Flavor type: fruit-forward Body type: medium Finish: elegant

Long, complex finish dominated by bright cherry, with a pleasing combination of spice, mineral and herbs.

Aromas of currant, black tar, leather and cedar make up the nose right bank Bordeaux blend. The entry is bright with red fruit, soft, elegant and extremely approachable. The mid palate has good weight, and exhibits flavors of red currant, blackberry, cedar and caramel. Slightly dusty tannins from the Cabernet Franc blend perfectly with vibrant fruit from the Merlot, to make this wine elegant and seamless from start to finish. The finish is a bit tight, showing the age worthiness of the wine.

Winemaker's Notes:

"Full bodied with currant, cherry, and strawberry along with dark black currant on the entry. Sweet tobacco, mineral, and herbal notes on the mid palate with licorice and vanilla spice. Finish is long and complex with red and black fruit candy notes, and spice nicely framed by medium, firm tannins. Elegant and complex, JUSTIFICATION pairs well with tea smoked duck or duck confit, roasted vegetables, or Filet Mignon with a red wine reduction. 2011 began with bud break about two weeks later than usual. Variable weather in late spring caused uneven fruit set, but naturally limited our yields without the need for manual thinning. The summer months were cooler than normal, delaying fruit ripening and maturity, but with careful canopy management we were able to expose the fruit and promote full maturity as the season progressed. A warm early fall with little rain allowed us to slowly ripen and mature the fruit with great results and with yields about 30% below what we would normally see. " -Winery
