The limestone stresses the vines, producing grapes that fully express their varietal character;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; This is a blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot inspired by the celebrated Right Bank wines of France. Aromatic with ripe red cherry, blackcurrant and just-ripe blackberry, with rich vanilla and cinnamon spice and an attractive savory and herbal character that Cabernet Franc classically brings to this blend. Full and complex on the palate with an elegant mix of ripe red fruit, primarily cherry with cassis and a little plum, and rich baking spice on the entry. A little dusty, savory cabernet franc charm emerges on the mid-palate along with subtle mint and eucalyptus nots leading to a long, clean finish. Returning cherry and currant fruit surrounded by firm tannins that give length and depth to this, perfectly balanced blend. On the more elegant side of the Bordeaux spectrum, the 2013 JUSTIFICATION shows well with a wide range of pairings from five spice duck, a duck confit or a classic entrecote bordelaise with pomme fritte.
