Brett and barnyard aromas punch you in the nose upon first whiff, grape juice underbelly becomes apparent with a second whiff. Increased barrel aging and the inclusion of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon imparts a touch more complexity, acidity, and astringency than its baby brother Cabernet Franc/Merlot blend "Justification".

Ripe black Fruit, full body and some green bell pepper jam, a bit of VA in the back, old school Cali Cab with fresh acidity, still young, 2011.

2011 > 2010 > 2009 in more than the pure mathematical sense. Big fruit, nice balance, somewhat extracted, plenty of oak, not too hot at 14.5% ABV. As a math nerd, I am a bit annoyed that only two of the four triangles on the Isosceles logo are in fact isosceles triangles.

Deep purple earthy nose dark fruit with chocolate overtones. Good mouth feel and long finish. Drinking well for 6 years old.
