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.

[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.

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 **

Mainly Cabernet Sauvignon, with some Cabernet Franc, and Merlot, this wine is exuberantly rich and sweet in ripe blackberry, black cherry and chocolate fruit. Smoky oak plays a crucial role, in both flavors and texture. Itrsquo;s a very pretty, polished wine, elegant and balanced and ready to drink now. Production was a hefty 11,000 cases.

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.
