"Shows a measure of finesse and restraint given the size, which is big and expressive, offering notes of plum, blackberry, baking spices and cedary oak. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Best from 2020 through 2032. 20,000 cases made. -JL" (WS)

"This flagship bottling is still a whopper of a wine. This vintage, a blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc and 12% Merlot, offers barely ripe black cherry, green peppercorn and charred fennel on the nose. The palate is loaded with both savory and ripe flavors, from roasted black plums and charred beef to oregano and dill. Very complex and chalky in texture." (WE)

Winery Notes:
Producer notes:
"73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, 12% Merlot. Bright, dense ruby purple core lightening toward the rim with thick, slow, moderately stained tears. Intense aromas of ripe black cherry, blackcurrant, vanilla, cinnamon and black licorice with dried herbs, cocoa, violets and toasted oak. Dry, full bodied and very complex with rich ripe black fruit and baking spice on the entry, with anise, purple flowers and chocolate on the mid-palate, joined by emerging chewy tannins into the fresh, balanced finish which is very long with sustained fruit and layers of evolving sweet spice. The palate of the 2014 Isosceles is very open right now for such a cellar worthy wine, and is an outstanding pairing with a classic prime rib or BBQ Brisket. After a few years it will be perfect with more complex dishes like a ragout of veal or lamb served with fresh pasta. Barrel aged 21 months in 100% new French oak. Alcohol 16%."
