Inspired by classic French Right Bank Bordeaux wines, this blend of merlot and cabernet franc showcases the bold, distinctive terrior of Paso Robles with full, bright fruit.

PALATE: Full and complex 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 notes 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.

Wine AdvocateA blend of 58% Cabernet Franc and 42% Merlot that spent 20 months in 45% new French oak, the 2013 Justification reveals a healthy ruby/purple color as well as classic Cabernet Franc notes of spring flowers, dried herbs, red currants and damp earth. Medium-bodied, supple, polished and charming on the palate, it has plenty to like and will keep nicely for 8-10 years.
