Winemaker's Notes:

The 2002 ISOSCELES has a deep, dark purple hue. Subtle blackberry aroma's combine with coffee and earthy tones in this opulent Bordeaux blend. The entry into the 2002 ISOSCELES is fruit forward and rich on the palate. Flavors of cherry, cassis and a hint of plumb evolve into layers of chocolate and caramel. The depth of the wine consumes your mouth, and creates a seamless, full-bodied texture from conception to the soft, integrated, French oak finish.

About Justin:

Justin and Deborah Baldwin acquired their land in 1981 and planted 72 acres in vineyards that same year. Initially they were wine growers, selling to other wineries. Then, in 1987, they harvested their first grapes bottled under the Justin label. Justin Winery concentrates on two Bordeaux styled red wines: Isoscleles, which is a 100% estate blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc and Justification, a blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Varietals are planted to specific soil types on their hillside vineyards 8 miles from the Pacific Ocean, on the Central Coast.
