2010 Justin Isosceles Reserve
Wine Spectator | Rating: 91Pure and deftly balanced, with a rich core of zesty blackberry and wild berry accented by spice and floral scents, jazzy spicy oak and a long, focused finish. Melted black licorice notes chime in on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Merlot.Drink Dates: 2014-2023Author: James Laube
Wine Advocate | Rating: 94The star of the show, the 2010 Isosceles Reserve (90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Malbec, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Merlot aged 21 months in 100% new French oak) is a deep, rich and muscular effort that still has some oak and tannin to integrate. Graphite, smoked dark fruits, exotic spice and sweet oak all emerge from this brilliant effort, and it hits the palate with a full-bodied, concentrated profile that carries layers of sweet tannin, solid mid-palate depth and a great finish. The tannin quality here is exceptional, and while it has no shortage of fruit, it retains a sense of elegance and balance.Drink Dates: 2016-2025Author: Jeb Dunnuck
