Justin Vineyards & Winery Isosceles 2001 Paso Robles, California 


My Rating 97 Points.   

Price $100.
Time for my Friday’s Cabernet fix, this weekend is starting off right…

What a beautiful color on this Cabernet blend.
Ruby/ brick in color with medium intensity and a brick/ purplish rim.

Wonderful nose of blackberries, blueberries, red currants, light vanilla, oak, licorice, eucalyptus, light bell pepper, light metals, minerals, spices and black pepper.

Full-bodied, not bold, but rather elegant and smooth with gorgeous legs and medium acidity.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, sweet cherries, vanilla, oak, licorice, black olives, spices, earth and peppercorn.

Long finish with fine-grained tannins, that engage the mouth with wonderful fullness, cherries and black pepper.

What a gorgeous wine this is. Aged wonderfully, smooth and elegant with great balance and an awesome mouthfeel. Just delicious.

Surprisingly, very drinkable right out of the bottle, but of course, after an hour in a decanter it was so much better.

A blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc and 10% Merlot. Aged for 6 months in French oak barrels.

15% alcohol by volume.

  1. Thank you for strolling through my posts. In return I had to visit yours. What a great review! Justin is just a stones throw away from my front door! Well, a few miles! I hope you sent this to them! I can’t imagine that they wouldn’t want to use your words in a write up of this somehow! Makes me want a sip!
