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.
Four and a half glasses
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.

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.
The new flagship release features predominantly cabernet sauvignon with smaller proportions of cabernet franc and merlot. Dark ruby core with a medium brick rim. Heady notes of macerated blackberry, roasted coffee, and berry cola nut on the nose. The... Neil Mechanic.

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 **
This wine exhibits a wonderful purity of ripe Cabernet fruit, with zesty plum, wild berry, blackberry and hints of dusty sage, earth and mineral. The tannins are ripe and firm, too, giving it a nice backbone. On the finish, though, itrsquo;s the fruit that shines through. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Drink now through 2012.
In any event, the 2007 Isosceles Reserve is a powerful effort that seemed very closed when I tasted it. It will not be released until later this year, so I hope to get another look at it in 6ndash;7 months. A blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, and 3% Petit Verdot, it is dense and concentrated, but the tannins seem slightly rustic, and the wine is firm, hard, and austere. However, there is enormous concentration and extract underneath the framework of this big, dense wine.
Dark, ripe and concentrated, with complex plum, wild blackberry and black cherry fruit thatrsquo;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.
