Justin Vineyards & Winery Isosceles Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2016

$79.99

The Isosceles Cabernet blend is one of Paso Robles most sought-after wines!  Get the limited new release now. The Justin 2016 Isosceles is bright with a deep ruby core, lighter with a bit of garnet toward the rim. 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. 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. Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc, 7% Merlot ISOSCELES is the embodiment of our dream to produce a Paso Robles wine in the style of the classic chateaux of the Médoc 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, the new packaging for this twenty fifth vintage of ISOSCELES reflects the character of this iconic wine and continues its proud heritage.

I love this blend and the 2016 didn’t disappoint. Structure, layers of fruit, power. Very nice right out of the bottle. Winner of the PAG Summer Tasting ‘19.

Impenetrably dark purple with medium blue undertones. Opens up to the pungent smell of muted blueberries, old cigarettes, and cheap candy. Oak, oak, and more oak fills your nose until that’s the only thing that exists. Nuance? What’s nuance. None to be found here. In every aspect, this wine feels focus grouped to death. Not made to represent the terroir of any particular locale, just assembled into a nondescript, seemingly pleasing package. Thick and syrupy, it’s unfair to other, brighter, wines to call this full bodied. The lack of any meaningful acidity really drives this point home. 14.5 on the label but I would have guessed higher. Dollar store fruit candy and clove cigarettes start to dominate the palate, but that oak creeps back in in no time. A lot of people like this wine, plenty love it. To me, it’s just the logical conclusion of creating a wine like substance specifically to appeal to everyone at the grocery store.

Wow. To quote @Steve Haro’s favorite soap opera - this is bold and beautiful. Weighty, palate-coating. Long finish. Full of black cherry, currant, and baking spice. A powerhouse with finesse.

I think Paso Robles wines, especially Justin Isosceles, are really good. One of my favorites. Is it priced a little high these days? Yes, I think so, therefore I don’t drink it as often. But very good.
