Justin Vineyard Justification 2011

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
