External Reviews for Justin Vineyards & Winery Red Bordeaux Blend Paso Robles Isosceles
A wonderfully rich and complex wine, smooth and seamless, with layers of ripe currant, black cherry and blackberry, with shades of anise, herb and earth. Finishes with just the right amount of acidity and tannin to sustain its long, lingering finish. Best from 2003 through 2012.
Intense, with chunky, tannic, herb-laced currant and leathery blackberry flavors. Turns dry and tannic. Best from 2002 through 2007.
The 1999 Isosceles (an unfiltered blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 17% Merlot) reveals copious quantities of earthy black currant, fig, and charcoal-infused fruit with a touch of new oak in the background. Full-bodied, with plenty of muscle as well as depth, it has a similar weight, but less complexity that the Reserve bottling. This promising 1999 can be drunk now as well as over the next 10-15 years.
Absolutely delicious, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (mostly), Cabernet Franc and Merlot is brimming with ripe and juicy currant, black cherry, wild berry, plum and anise flavors that are complex, deep and polished. Finishes long and flavorfully. Best from 2002 through 2012.
A smooth, silky texture supports ripe black cherry, blackberry, cassis, bay leaf, sage, anise, toast and chocolate flavors. Moderate acidity and firm, ripe tannins provide structure. The berry and herb flavors echo on on the long finish.
Justin proves that Bordeaux can succeed in western Paso Robles, but interestingly, the wine is Cab Franc and Merlot, with no Sauvignon. Both varieties do well in cooler areas, and this wine does have good acidity and a rich earthiness suggesting butt... Wine Enthusiast. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2004 Justin Vineyard Justification 750ml
Dark, ripe and concentrated, with complex plum, wild blackberry and black cherry fruit that's well-focused and persistent through the finish, where the tannins are ripe and integrated, pushing into blackberry jam. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Drink now through 2009. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
Harvest method: 100% hand-harvested Fermentation: 10 to 15 days with UV-43 Maceration: 28 to 35 days including fermentation Total Acidity: .68 g/100ml Malolactic fermentation: in barrel Yeasts: UV-43 Barrel aging: 24 months in 225-L French oak barrels, 65% new Barrels: Center of France, Vosges, Allier, Nevers Barrel replacement: 40-60% annually Racking: every 3 months Blend: 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, 7% Merlot ISOSCELES is dark purple with a slight crimson overtone around the rim. Aromas of boysenberry, leather, mocha, mint and cassis combine with light layers of caramel and vanilla resulting from the extended oak ageing. A soft, fruit forward, elegant entry segues into a mid palate with length and complexity. Seamless, integrated tannins marry with ripe fruit, and flavors of coffee, butterscotch and hint of pencil lead on the finish of this wine
