2016 / Red

2016 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 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.

TASTING NOTES

Appearance: Dark ruby purple core with blue/black secondary hue, a medium rim with thick tears showing slight staining on the glass.

Aroma: 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.

Palate: 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.


FOOD PAIRINGS
