(From 2008 Vintage) This has become one of JUSTIN's iconic wines in a very brief time. It is a unique blend inspired by the Bordeaux "right-bank" regions of St. Emilion and Pomerol, where very little cabernet sauvignon is grown due to soil and drainage conditions. JUSTIN has always been "justifiably" proud of the excellent cabernet franc on our property, and our small plots of merlot give it just the right richness of fruit in a serious and cellarable wine. It offers a touch more elegance than our complementary ISOSCELES blend, and sees a briefer time in French-only oak as well.
