Those in the know will tell you that the Dr. Crane vineyard is one of St. Helena's prized ponies. When we doubled down with To Kalon on the blending side... well, look out below! Brooding black cherries with a spice and cassis edge and layers of lavish oak speak to the sort of farming and winemaking we need to play in deep water.
Our foray into the deep end of the Cabernet pool has gotten some big-time attention from the right people. We loved the wines from the day they finished fermenting, but admittedly, we're a little biased. Then our customers tried them and were not shy about sharing their enthusiasm. Then Wine Spectator got their hands on them and put us in their '20 to Watch' feature, along with some scores that didn't hurt our feelings. And now Robert Parker has weighed in with some very favorable reviews for the 2013 vintage. All in all, it's a beautiful thing when hard work and serious effort are rewarded!
Utilizing fruit from two of Andy Beckstoffer's historic vineyards - To Kalon and Dr. Crane - and working with the undeniable talents of Tim Milos in the cellar, the Justice Series wines are three individual expressions of the finest fruit Napa can deliver. The jury has come back, the verdict is in, and Justice is served!
