2019 / Red

2019 JUSTIFICATION

With JUSTIFICATION, the Old World meets the New with a blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot. This wine expresses the spirit of a few right bank French Bordeaux producers who highlight Cabernet Franc with its complex expression of herbs, red fruit and elegant structure, only with a Paso Robles twist of full, mature fruit. A versatile pairing wine to a wide range of foods, the 2019 JUSTIFICATION is perfect for a romantic dinner in front of a crackling fire or a summer’s evening barbeque.

Tasting notes

Appearance: Deep ruby-purple at its core leading to a lighter rim and deeply stained tears.

Aroma: Elegant and assertive with notes of black cherries, ripe plums and raspberry preserves which are balanced by vanilla, star anise, cinnamon, toasted oak, saddle leather, and camphor.

Palate: Nearly full-bodied, ripe blackberries and black currants with elements of cedar and baking spices on entry, leading to a mid-palate featuring grippy tannins and notes of savory herbs and hints of dried rose petals. The lingering, fresh finish features sustained tannins with sweet raspberries, fresh mission figs, and dusty leather tones.


Food pairings

The 2019 JUSTIFICATION is bold with balanced textures making it a perfect pairing with flavorful foods like bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin or traditional barbeque such as a smoked brisket.
