High-end red series from America's top winery

Paso Robles, the northern limit of Southern California, where time flows slowly. The representative is Justin Vineyard, which was elected as "American Winery of the Year", ahead of wineries such as Napa and Sonoma.

This JUSTIFICATION uses a word that sounds similar to the name of the winery. It means "to justify" and "justifiable reason", and the winery's confidence in this wine is overflowing.

Deep ruby ​​color with hints of purple and blue. Aromatic ripe cherry, cassis, vanilla, cinnamon and licorice. In addition, the scent of cedar, oak, leather, and fallen autumn leaves is followed by a faint mint, and the richness of its expressiveness will increase your expectations even before you drink it.

Medium-full bodied, ripe red cherries combine with a spicy cassis mouthfeel with a mid-palate of cedar and oak and appetizing herbal notes. The aftertaste is long and has a fruity return scent.

Elegant and perfectly harmonized with fruit flavors, the structured justification can be used in a variety of food pairings, making it versatile.

Confidence that "justifies" anything at your table.
