2013 ISOSCELES® Reserve

ISOSCELES Reserve is built upon the exceptional quality and character of the Bordeaux grape varieties grown in Paso Robles. Each year, we draw from the most distinctive barrels from the top lots of each variety to decide the final blend for this outstanding wine. Impressive in its youth, ISOSCELES Reserve will cellar nicely, gaining new layers of complexity, revealing the wine’s true potential over time.

TASTING NOTES

Appearance: Bright, nearly opaque ruby-purple-black core that fills the glass nearly to the rim and showing thick, well stained tears falling from around the sides of the glass.
Aroma: Intense and complex with layers of sweet ripe fruit character of black cherry, blackcurrant jam and boysenberry, sweet tobacco, licorice root, cocoa and cedar with complex baking spice and attractive French oak notes.
Palate: Full bodied and very complex, with lush ripe fruit of black cherry, cassis, and blackberry jam with a mix of vanilla, cinnamon and licorice spice on the rich, mouth filling entry. The mid-palate unfolds with sustained sweet fruit matched with layers of savory cabernet elements, cedar, licorice, chocolate and a little mint. The finish is exceptionally long and plush yet fresh with generous chewy tannins matching the rich fruit and spice character, giving the 2013 ISOSCELES Reserve a wonderfully complete and very complex palate that will evolve beautifully as time goes by, but will delight after only a short time in your cellar with its rich fruit character. This is a big, bold and balanced wine that will drink nicely on its own, but would also be a perfect accompaniment with boldly flavored meat preparations like slow braised beef ribs or lamb shanks.
