    Winemaker's Notes:

    The ISOSCELES has a brilliant ruby color with garnet hues. Layers upon layers of aromas appear as this wine evolves in the glass. Toasted oak, pencil lead, and caramel combine with cherry, black currant and earthy components on the nose. A delicate, soft entry is complemented by raspberry, strawberry and black currant. Cedar and spice appear after the fruit components and are quickly followed by a delicate balance of acidity and medium bodied tannins. On the finish, the wine leaves a lasting impression of toasted oak, strawberry, raspberry, blackcurrant and blackberry.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Justin’s flagship offering, the unfiltered 2001 Isosceles Reserve (73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, and 1% Malbec), boasts a blockbuster perfume of incense, black currants, spice, flowers, and subtle wood. Voluptuous in the mouth, with tremendous fruit purity, a beautiful, multi-layered texture, and a long finish, this terrific offering is about as good as Bordeaux varietals can be in this sector of California’s Central Coast. Although accessible, this tour de force in winemaking will drink well over the next 10-15 years.
