WINEMAKER NOTES

Much in the way 2017 revealed a new expression of the many faces of Justice, the 2018 wine emerged from a completely new section of the vineyard. The dense and brooding block of 667 we typically lean on to build the core of this wine had all of these attributes amplified in 2018 to the point of losing balance. Its neighboring block however, was full of lissome charms and purity of expression, so it came to pass in 2018 the Justice bears a new countenance: red fruited, sleek and refined.
-Ben Casteel


ACCOLADES

94 Points, JAMESSUCKLING.COM Planted in 1999, this has an exotic nose with a crushed-violet edge, as well as rich, cassis and blueberry aromas, in a more singular expression, – at least for now. The palate has a very fresh core of vibrant, fresh blue-fruit and blueberry-pastry flavors. Long and pure. Drinkable now, but better from 2023.
