Tasting Notes:

92 points "From K & L Wines: "Long Justin's signature wine, the 2005 Isosceles blends 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc and 7% Merlot into a distinguished, complex wine. Although quite young, this crimson-colored wine's nose is already quite nuanced, casting off aromas of boysenberries, cassis, espresso and mint with earthy sweet notes of new leather, caramel and vanilla. In the mouth the attack is soft and sweet, giving way to a fruit-filled mouthcoating mid-palate with coffee, butterscotch and graphite flavors that linger through the finish. If you can't wait to drink this one, decant it for a few hours first, otherwise, find it a home in your cellar for a good while, this will continue to evolve for the next 10-15 years.""

88 points "Rich and layered, with dried cherry, plum, currant and blackberry fruit that's intense, full-bodied, concentrated and complex, fanning out nicely on the finish, where this gains depth and complexity. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Best from 2011 through 2016. 1,500 cases made. –JL WS - Nov 15, 2009" Best 2011-2016
