Winemaker Notes

Deep ruby-purple core with black hue, lightens to medium intensity at the rim with slow forming, moderately stained tears on the glass. Highly aromatic and very complex with a mix of red and black fruit of cherry and currant, cedar, vanilla, licorice and cinnamon spice with camphor and dry autumn leaf and graphite accents. Full-bodied and compelling with layers of fruit, spice and savory flavors that continue to unfold as the palate evolves. Red and black cherry and blackcurrant fruit layered with complex spice including vanilla, licorice cinnamon and cedar lead the entry. The mid-palate is showy with sustained, complex fruit, savory tobacco leaf and cocoa notes. The finish is fresh, long and complex with black cherry and camphor beautifully integrated with savory elements and framed with mouth-filling, fine tannins that balance the wine’s rich palate and predict a good future in the cellar… if you can save a bottle or two for a few years. Full and complex, the 2015 ISOSCELES has a freshness that will perfectly balance richer foods like slowly braised beef short ribs, or oxtail stew, but will pair beautifully with an aged, prime ribeye steak.

Wine Enthusiast
There is a focused intensity of black plum, elderberry and black-cherry pie on the nose of this blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 4% Malbec. A ripe blackcherry flavor meets with licorice, vanilla and fudge on the palate, where polished tannins provide ample structure

Justin  Winery Image
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.

Paso Robles Wine

Central Coast, California

View all products

Paso Robles has made a name for itself as a source of supple, powerful, fruit-driven wines. But with eleven smaller sub-AVAs, there is actually quite a bit of diversity to be found in this inland portion of California’s Central Coast.

Just east over the Santa Lucia Mountains from the chilly Pacific Ocean, lie the coolest in the region: Adelaida, Templeton Gap and (Paso Robles) Willow Creek Districts, as well as York Mountain AVA and Santa Margarita Ranch. These all experience more ocean fog, wind and precipitation compared to the rest of the Paso sub-appellations. The San Miguel, (Paso Robles) Estrella, (Paso Robles) Geneso, (Paso Robles) Highlands, El Pomar and Creston Districts, along with San Juan Creek, are the hotter, more western appellations of the greater Paso Robles AVA.

This is mostly red wine country, with Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel standing out as the star performers. Other popular varieties include Merlot, Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, Syrah, Grenache and Rhône blends, both red and white. There is a fairly uniform tendency here towards wines that are unapologetically bold and opulently fruit-driven, albeit with a surprising amount of acidity thanks to the region’s chilly nighttime temperatures.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
