The 2006 ISOSCELES is inky purple with a slight red hue around the rim. Aromas of blackberry, black plum, leather, mocha, and cassis combine with light layers of caramel, vanilla and a touch of smoke resulting from the extended oak ageing. The entry is filled with red and black fruit. A balance of softness and acidity segues into a mid palate with length and weight. Seamless, integrated tannins marry with ripe fruit, and flavors of red currant, butterscotch and hint of pencil lead on the finish of this wine. The 2006 ISOSCELES is very young, and will continue to evolve from now through 2025.
This wine today doesn't compare favorably with previous vintages. Heres to hoping time in the bottle is the recipe for success because it isn't close to ready right now. Very disappointing.
