“Coming from a cool vintage, the 2011 Isosceles Reserve is still a big, rich Paso Cabernet that reveals ample blackcurrants, black raspberry, leather and savory spice on the nose. Nicely concentrated on the palate, yet relatively focused and straight, with moderate breadth and a touch of chewy tannin, give it year or two and plan on drinking bottles by 2025.” – Robert Parker
One of the original estates to focus on Bordeaux Varieties from Paso Robles, Justin Vineyards pulls from a number of estate vineyards and the wines are made by Fred Holloway and Scott Shirley.
The highest expression of JUSTIN Vineyards & Winery is our ISOSCELES Reserve. Sourced entirely from our home estate vineyard planted in 1981 this wine reflects the pinnacle of our efforts. Vines planted on native root stock, in nutrient depleted soils, dry farmed and hand harvested produce tiny yields that are big on flavor. Painstaking efforts by our vineyard and winemaking team including hand sorting, cold soaking open top fermentation, extended maceration and aging in 100% new French oak barrels for up to 25 months produce rewards that both you and the critics appreciate.
