2014 Justin Isosceles RESERVE
“ISOSCELES Reserve is built upon the exceptional quality and character of the Bordeaux grape varieties grown in Paso Robles. Each year, we draw from the most distinctive barrels from the top lots of each variety to decide the final blend for this outstanding wine. Impressive in its youth, ISOSCELES Reserve will cellar nicely, gaining new layers of complexity, revealing the wine’s true potential over time.
“Deep ruby-purple core with black hue, lightens to medium intensity at the rim with slow forming, moderately stained tears on the glass. Highly aromatic and very complex with a mix of red and black fruit of cherry and currant, cedar, vanilla, licorice and cinnamon spice with camphor and dry autumn leaf and graphite accents. Full-bodied and compelling with layers of fruit, spice and savory flavors that continue to unfold as the palate evolves. Red and black cherry and blackcurrant fruit layered with complex spice including vanilla, licorice cinnamon and cedar lead the entry. The mid-palate is showy with sustained, complex fruit, savory tobacco leaf and cocoa notes. The finish is fresh, long and complex with black cherry and camphor beautifully integrated with savory elements and framed with mouth-filling, fine tannins that balance the wine’s rich palate and predict a good future in the cellar… if you can save a bottle or two for a few years. Full and complex, the 2015 ISOSCELES has a freshness that will perfectly balance richer foods like slowly braised beef short ribs, or oxtail stew, but will pair beautifully with an aged, prime ribeye steak.”
“There is a focused intensity of black plum, elderberry and black-cherry pie on the nose of this blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 4% Malbec. A ripe black cherry flavor meets with licorice, vanilla and fudge on the palate, where polished tannins provide ample structure” – Wine Enthusiast
