Justin Isosceles 2012
Appearance: Bright, deep ruby/purple core going to medium intensity at the rim. Aroma: Intense aromas of ripe black cherry and blackcurrant with classic baking spice elements, sweet tobacco, cocoa, coffee, cedar and subtle mint. Palate: 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.
