2013 Justin Isosceles Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles
Bright, dense, ruby purple core lightening toward the rim with thick, slow, moderately stained tears.
Intense aromas of ripe black cherry, black currant, 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 spices.
Perfect paired with a classic prime rib or barbecue brisket and after a few years with more complex dishes, like a ragout of veal or lamb served with fresh pasta.
