Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of green apple, kiwi and ripe stone fruit combine with a hint of caramel and toasted oak on the nose of this wine. The entry is bright and crisp with good acid and flavors of white peach, apricot, meyer lemon and hints of mineral and vanilla. The wine finishes by coating your mouth with multiple layers of honey, cream, and a touch of spice from the "lees" stirred French oak.

About Justin:

Justin and Deborah Baldwin acquired their land in 1981 and planted 72 acres in vineyards that same year. Initially they were wine growers, selling to other wineries. Then, in 1987, they harvested their first grapes bottled under the Justin label. Justin Winery concentrates on two Bordeaux styled red wines: Isoscleles, which is a 100% estate blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc and Justification, a blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Varietals are planted to specific soil types on their hillside vineyards 8 miles from the Pacific Ocean, on the Central Coast.
