(From 2013 Vintage) Dark ruby purple core lightening to medium intensity at the rim with moderate staining on the glass.
Bright with a deep ruby core and violet rim. On the nose it presents an attractive mix of red and black fruit of currants, cherry and blackberry layered with spicy notes of anise, vanilla and with a subtle cedar character from an American oak influence. Complex with bright fruit of blackcurrant, cherry, and boysenberry mixed with licorice and subtle cedar notes on a long finish along with some mineral and cherry candy notes supported by smooth rounded tannins.
In its newly designed bottle, this is Justin's 'Ambassador Wine,' which leads to the winery's iconic Justification and Isosceles wines. While still young, it gets rounder by the minute, so just imagine its beauty over the years. Bright is the first word that comes to mind, washed with blackberry and cedar spice. A great value for a labor-intensive wine that starts with hand-picked and -sorted berries and spends 18 months in 225-liter American oak barrels.
