The 2018 Poetic Justice is an ode to single-vineyard, terroir-driven wines and an exploration of a magnificent new source. Lowrey Vineyard’s Southview block enjoys hillside dominance, staring down at Rutherford and rubbing elbows with Pritchard Hill. This wine borrows the best from both worlds and adds a nuance all its own.
Integrity, quality, honesty and trust. These are the core values of the Bounty Hunter and the mantra for the Justice trio. With almost 15 vintages crafted expressly for Bounty Hunter, we couldn’t be prouder of the track record of our own flagship brand. They hang with the very best of the Napa Valley. Andy Beckstoffer’s Dr. Crane and To Kalon vineyards are Napa Valley royalty, first recognized for their greatness in the 19th century. They are two of the most purely alluvial vineyard sites in the valley, making them true Napa Valley Grand Crus. It isn’t just hype or fashion that causes wines from these vineyards to receive legions of 100-point scores every year; it’s the fact that these are simply magic vineyard sites, ones that have helped elevate brands like Schrader, Carter Cellars, Paul Hobbs, Realm, and Myriad to superstar status. Our long and enthusiastic partnership with these vineyards dates back almost 15 years, and the track record of our Justice wines now speaks for itself. Justice is served.
Emerging from the Upper Range Vineyard project, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Poetic Justice Lowrey Vineyard Southview offers some herbal, meaty, iron nuances as well as lots of dark black fruits, full-bodied richness, and both tannins and acidity. It has the fleshy, upfront, hedonistic style found in all these Justice releases, yet it still has balance as well as structure. Enjoy bottles over the coming two decades. This cuvée is 100% Cabernet that spent 20 months in two-thirds new French oak.
