The 2013 vintage marks a new era for Justine.
It is the first year we began to source Upland
Vineyard Grenache to the blend. This beautiful
south-facing site in the middle of the Yakima
Valley produces some of the best Grenache in
the state, almost Old World in style, which we
have blended with our other Grenache block
in the Horse Heaven Hills, and Mourvedre and
Syrah from Red Mountain, to create our version
of the Southern Rhone blend. The vibrancy and
focused fruit characters that are emblematic of 
the vintage are particularly well suited to
this lively and complex wine.

Leading with aromas of black raspberry,kirsch,
lavender, jasmine, and wet limestone, the palate
is concentrated and focused, with a complex array
of dark red fruits, blackberry from the Mourvedre,
licorice root, garrigue, and finishing with savory
umami notes and a stony minerality that evokes
the Old World wines that inspired this classic blend.
