Justin Isosceles 2013

Out of stock

We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Full-bodied with concentrated ripe black cherry, cassis and boysenberry jam on the entry, layered with toasted vanilla, cinnamon, and licorice spice. Classic Cabernet savory notes emerge on the mid-palate with dark chocolate, coffee and minty accents. The finish is extremely long, balanced and fresh, with continued layering of black fruit, cherry candy and spice elements all framed perfectly with mouth-filling but very fine tannins that surround and support the wine's flavorful core. Drinking well on release, the 2012 Isosceles will continue to develop in bottle showing further complexity, grace and precision as its elements continue to interact. A perfect accompaniment to hearty meat dishes like braised beef ribs, a ribeye steak right off the grill, or just on its own.

Wine EnthusiastThis hearty blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Cabernet Franc and 9% Merlot is what put Justin on the map, and it still impresses with its elegantly woven tobacco, leather, cocoa, blueberry, and caramel aromas. It hits the palate softly, showing black cherry, baking spice, milk chocolate and faint mint notes, ending in a finish that reveals a firm tannic structure.
