Winemaker's Notes

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.

"Dense inky purple hue. Exotic scents of plum, blackberry and rum cake with secondary nuances of brown sugar, blueberry and vanilla. Juicy flavors of black cherry and mocha with hints of cedar box. Well-combed, oak-laced tannins and lingering impressions of raspberry, mocha and toasted oak in the lengthy close." 92 Points
