Located in the Eola-Amity Hills, Justice Vineyard is situated at 450 feet and benefits from the cool coastal winds blowing through the Van Duzer corridor. Pinot Noir clone 777 planted in 2001 to volcanic soil was fermented in small fermentors after two days of cold maceration. The wine then aged for 16 months in French oak (33% new) and was bottled by gravity without fining.
