Winemaker's Notes:

Pale gold in color with a light straw colored rim. Aromas include apple and peach, along with a bit of quince, merging together with vanilla notes from the minimal sense of toasted oak. On the palate, one finds white peach, along with hints of mineral and toasted almonds, finishing with tart lemony-citrus notes, and a touch of spice from the stirred lees.

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.
