WA 91 Vinous 91 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - "The estate's Cabernet-dominated release, the 2012 Isosceles checks in as 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Franc, all of which spent 21 months in new French oak. It's a medium to full-bodied, supple, pure and balanced effort that offers lots of toasted spice, cedar, tobacco leaf and cassis-like aromas and flavors. Showing hints of chalky minerality and plenty of tannin on the finish, it will have 10-12+ years of longevity."
According to Josh Raynolds - "Glass-staining ruby. Heady smoke- and spice-tinged aromas of cherry pie, cassis, potpourri, pipe tobacco and allspice, with a touch of vanilla slowly emerging. Juicy and penetrating, with intense black and blue fruit flavors that spread out and stain the palate. The sweet, gently tannic finish displays excellent clarity and lift and a lingering note of candied rose."
Tasting Notes - "Bright, deep ruby/purple core going to medium intensity at the rim. Full-bodied with concentrated ripe black cherry, cassis and boysenberry jam on the entry, layered with toasted vanilla, cinnamon, and licorice spice. Classic cabernet savory notes emerge on the mid-palate with dark chocolate, coffee and minty accents. The finish is extremely long, balanced and fresh, with continued layering of black fruit, cherry candy and spice elements all framed perfectly with mouth-filling but very fine tannins that surround and support the wine’s flavorful core. Drinking well on release, the 2012 ISOSCELES will continue to develop in bottle showing further complexity, grace and precision as its elements continue to interact." 77% Cabernet Sauvignon 12% Merlot 11% Cabernet Franc. 15.5% ABV.
