3.5 stars "Dark color. Rasberry aromas on the nose followed by additional chocolate notes and dried fruit flavors on the palate. Medium to full-bodied."

"Tasting Notes: The 2004 ISOSCELES is inky blue with a slight purple overtone around the rim. Aromas of blueberry, black cherry and cassis fill the glass. The entry is soft, velvety and filled with bright fruit. Seamless, lengthy tannins scream across the palate showing the youth and potential longevity of this wine. Layers of complexity evolve into a finish that combines flavors of coffee, dark fruit and hints of vanilla and caramel. The 2004 ISOSCELES is very young, and will continue to evolve from now through 2020. Vintage Summary: The 2004 vintage began with relatively low rainfall. Dry soils and a warm February resulted in an early bud break. Spring generated ideal weather, limiting heat spikes and allowing vines to produce full, dense canopies. In early June, we removed laterals and selective leaves to manipulate the canopy, and allow filtered light to penetrate the clusters. The warmest summer since 1997 produced consecutive months of 90-degree temperatures. Veraison came early and was very even, allowing us to drop any discolored or green fruit left prior to harvest. August was nearly perfect, with only one day jumping above 100 degrees. September and October remained generally warm, providing a perfect climate for harvesting ripe fruit while still maintaining natural acidity. "
