2015 Justin Isosceles Paso Robles Red Wine
For more than 25 vintages, ISOSCELES has been our flagship wine and quality benchmark for this style of wine here on the Central Coast of California. A blend based on Cabernet Sauvignon supported by Cabernet Franc and Merlot, the 2015 ISOSCELES shows why Paso Robles such a great place to grow these varieties. While the 2015 ISOSCELES projects the cooler nature of this vintage with ripe red and black fruit and structure that could point to keeping a few bottles in the cellar, it’s so good now that you may want to enjoy a bottle or two right away.
Appearance: 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.
Aroma: 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.
Palate: 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.
Alc by Vol. 15%. 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc, 11% Merlot.
