Winemaker Notes

Justification exhibits the deep, ruby color of its predecessors. The nose possesses complex scents of pencil shavings and bittersweet chocolate. Fruit aromas range from dark black cherry to touches of bright cranberry. The mouth is medium to full body, with flavors closely echoing the aromas found in the nose. Overall, this wine is tightly wound at the present and will benefit from at least 4 to 7 years additional aging. Remember, this wine is unfiltered, so carefully decant any bottles cellared for several years.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
This Cab Franc and Merlot blend is elegant and refined. Notable for the subtle interplay of dried earth, blueberry and oak flavors with the rich tannins. It’s a wine of enormous charm and finesse. Bone dry, and packing a long, fruity finish.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
An unfiltered blend of 76% Cabernet Franc and 24% Merlot, the impressive 2002 Justification reveals a saturated ruby/purple color along with a knock-out nose of blueberries and currants. This fleshy, expansive, medium to full-bodied effort is very light on its feet with nicely integrated tannin, wood, and acidity. A high class, subtle, but authoritatively rich red, it is good to see Cabernet Franc doing this well in the Paso Robles area.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Stylish in its presentation and range of flavors, with firm, fleshy currant, black cherry, plum and wild berry tones. Picks up momentum and reveals extra dimensions of depth and complexity on the long, satisfying finish. Cabernet Franc and Merlot.
