K&L Notes

Inspired by the Bordeaux Right Bank red wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol, Justification is a Cabernet Franc-based blend (with Merlot) that not only proves that Bordeaux varietals can excel in Paso Robles, producing cellar-worthy wines, but that Cabernet Franc is particularly suited to the climate and soils of Justin's Paso Robles estate. Here Cabernet Franc is able to ripen fully while preserving varietal typicity in its aroma and flavor profile. In the Justification, the addition of small-lot Merlot fleshes the wine out, adding richness and body around Cab Franc's sturdy core. Aged for eighteen months in partially new French oak, the 2009 Justification is an elegant offering with a lot of primary fruit character and new oak spice to be enjoyed young, but could also be cellared 5-7 years to savor the complexities that come with bottle age.
