A fabulous wine, despite it's youth. More tannic than I remember the '07 vintage being, which I enjoyed. Very balanced, coats your entire palette and leaves great acidic fruit at the back of your mouth. Can't wait to taste in five to six years. Planning on vertical tasting it vs. the '06 and the '07.
Excellent wine. Let it breathe for an hour to two hours and you'll be blown away.
Elegant, well structured, good complexity nice tannnis. Drinkable now, but should get even better with age. Open/decant for several hours. Surpasses many other belnds and cabs in the price range.
[PJW] better than the recent 01s. Livelier fruity 89
[Chart House, Surf and Turf] Ruby-red in color; blackcherry and spice on the nose; on the palate, huge dark fruit--mostly blackcherry, cola, a hint of raspberry, and spice; moderate tannins, longish finish. Improved after the first hour; initially some mint and a little syrupy quality that disappeared over time. I agree it is not at all a classic Bordeaux; it does lack some balance with its fruity blast, but it can be fun.Previously tasted this wine at Sparks and everyone loved it with a great porterhouse and mushrooms, which is a perfect pairing to balance its fruit and thickness. This time my steak was marinated in a sweet mango sauce. However, the salad bar mushrooms, though low-quality and cold, did offer a hint of the wine's potential when properly paired.
External Reviews for Justin Vineyards & Winery Red Bordeaux Blend Paso Robles Isosceles
Appearance: Dark ruby in the glass with a violet rimAroma: An alluring, rich mix of ripe black currants and berries faceted with vanilla, cinnamon and cocoa highlights.Palate: Full bodied, complex black fruit of lush currants, and cherry layered with licorice and vanilla spice with chocolate, roasted coffee, and tobacco. The finish is extremely long and complex, showing firm plush tannins that bring everything together making it easy to drink it now, but implying a great future. - WineryAppellation: Paso RoblesComposition: 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc, 3% MerlotpH: 3.65Total Acidity: 0.67 g/100mlAlcohol: 15.5% by volume ** SOLD OUT **

A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2009 Justin Vineyard Isosceles Proprietary Red Wine 750ml
54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot. It exhibits sweeter tannins along with dense black fruits intermixed with charcoal, creme de cassis, roasted herbs, and spice box.
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.
The highest expression of our winemaking abilities. Our iconic Bordeaux blend was always the dream concept of Justin Baldwin, in the model of the great Bordeaux left-bank wines of Pauillac and Margaux. Over 20 years of experience have helped guide us to great vineyards and low yields, and to spare no expense on production equipment and French barrels, to make the finest wine of Paso Robles. Yet every vintage provides new challenges, and new attempts to drive excellence in a cellarable but immediately delicious blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, and merlot.
Sleek and elegant, with a complex interplay of herb, green olive, black cherry and wild berry flavors. Supple and polished on the finish. Best from 2000 through 2006.
