Justin Justification 2013


SKU 24422


Color: Deep ruby purplish core lightening to medium intensity at the rim with moderate tearing and slight staining on the glass. Aroma: 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. 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. Food Pairing: On the more elegant side of the Bordeaux sprectrum, 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.

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.
