Justin Isosceles Reserve 2014
|Region||California, Central Coast, Paso Robles|
There is a focused intensity of black plum, elderberry and black-cherry pie on the nose of this blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 4% Malbec. A ripe black-cherry flavor meets with licorice, vanilla and fudge on the palate, where polished tannins provide ample structure.
A lush, warm and ripe style, with a heavy wave of plum and blackberry reduction notes lumbering through, coated liberally with licorice and ganache accents. Thick in feel, this shows some polish and fruit, but remains a bit tiring to drink. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Drink now through 2021. 4,185 cases made.
