Tasting Notes:

Color: Bright with a deep ruby core, lighter with a bit of garnet toward the rim. Aroma: Rich and aromatic with dark fruit of black cherry, cassis, exotic licorice, cinnamon, and subtle vanilla spice with sweet notes of tobacco, a little cocoa and subtle toasted cedar in the background. Palate: Full bodied with black cherry and classic black currant fruit, complex brown spice of star anise, licorice with cocoa and herbal notes of sweet tobacco and a hint of eucalyptus. The rest is classic Bordeaux cabernet sauvignon - fruit, complex spice, and mineral flavors balanced with guiding structural elements on a long, memorable finish. Drink on release or wait a dozen years, this one will be ready for you.

Vineyard Notes:

The 2010 growing season had a cool, wet beginning. After three dry years, the heavy rains replenished the limestone soils of our vineyards allowing them to soak up much needed moisture into the high water-retaining clay sub-soils. Spring was late, but stayed calm and consistent, with no frost issues. Bud break came late due to the cold winter, and a mild spring and dry May segued into moderately cool early summer months. August finally brought on the heat, but the uncommonly cool early summer caused the latest harvest in JUSTIN history allowing the soft harvest sun to slowly marry ripe varietal characteristics with bright, fresh acidity.

Winemaker Notes:

ISOSCELES is the embodiment of our dream to produce a Paso Robles wine in the style of the classic chateaux of the M├ędoc area of Bordeaux. Each vintage of ISOSCELES drinks beautifully upon release, revealing its Paso roots, and after years in the cellar it shows the quality, complexity, and age-worthiness of the wines after which it is styled. Elegantly understated, but with impressive complexity on further examination, our new packaging for this twenty fourth vintage of ISOSCELES reflects the character of this iconic wine and continues its proud heritage as we move into an exciting future here at JUSTIN.
