Winemaker Notes

Dark ruby purple core with a black hue, lighter at the rim and more ruby in color. Moderate plus viscosity with moderate tearing and light staining on the glass. Very aromatic, complex and layered with vibrant red cherry, ripe black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, vanilla and cinnamon spice, with camphor and licorice, savory cigar box notes and an attractive, youthful toasted oak underpinning. Dry and full-bodied, layered with red and black cherry, cassis and complex baking spice on the entry. Sweet tobacco and classic savory pencil-like notes of cedar and graphite with a little cocoa emerge on the crisp mid-palate with firm chewy tannins lasting into a long, complex finish that shows a parade of fruit and spice balanced with constantly evolving textures and savory notes.

Try the 2015 ISOSCELES right now with a simply seasoned oak grilled prime ribeye steak, or wait a few years to enjoy its added complexity with the layered flavors of slowly braised lamb shanks.

Blend: 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc, 11% Merlot

COMMENTARY: Over the last three decades, I have spent a lot of time in Paso Robles, and I have tasted plenty of what the region offers. Sometimes, I have to battle the high alcohol and wines that could be better balanced. The 2015 Justin Isosceles is a cut above most of the players. TASTING NOTES: This wine drives plenty of power from the start as its finish and aftertaste stay firm and elegant. Its aromas and flavors of bold, ripe fruit and oak accents make this wine a prime choice pairing with a juicy grilled ribeye. (Tasted: August 17, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Wine Enthusiast

Snappy aromas of boysenberry and black raspberry mark a somewhat lighter, brighter spin on this classic blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc and 11% Merlot. Smashed plums and berries run into tobacco and herbs on the palate, where bright acidity pushes into the finish.
