Justin Isosceles 6 Liter 2010 6L Bottle
Winemaker Notes :
Bright with a deep ruby core, lighter with a bit of garnet toward the rim. Rich and aromatic with dark fruit of black cherry, cassis, exotic licorice, cinnamon, and subtle vanilla spice with sweet notes of tobacco, a little cocoa and subtle toasted cedar in the background. Full bodied with black cherry and classic black currant fruit, complex brown spice of star anise, licorice with cocoa and herbal notes of sweet tobacco and a hint of eucalyptus. The rest is classic Bordeaux cabernet sauvignon - fruit, complex spice, and mineral flavors balanced with guiding structural elements on a long, memorable finish. Drink on release or wait a dozen years, this one will be ready for you.
Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc, 7% Merlot
The Tasting PanelFragrant purple flowers hold up a reservoir of grape and blueberry. This is juicy to its very core: ripe, sweet and toasted cinnamon sprinkled with a flash of cranberry. Earthy, gripping tannins are held in check, nestled in a soft cloth. Sturdy but palate-stroking.
International Wine CellarBright purple. Blackberry, dark cherry, licorice, wild herbs, chocolate and a touch of smoked game on the nose. Lush and deep but surprisingly lively, with concentrated flavors of dark berries and smoked meat. Expands and gains sweetness with air, finishing with substantial but harmonious tannins and very good length.
