“Cheers!” Etched 2018 ISOSCELES
About the Wine
Spread a little extra holiday cheer this year with our 2018 ISOSCELES, beautifully etched with “Cheers!”
For more than 30 vintages, ISOSCELES has been our flagship wine and quality benchmark for this style of wine here on the Central Coast of California. A blend based on Cabernet Sauvignon supported by Cabernet Franc and Merlot, the 2018 ISOSCELES shows why Paso Robles is such a great place to grow these varieties.

Deep ruby/purple core with black secondary color, lighter toward the rim with moderate-plus viscosity and slow-forming, moderately stained tears.
Very aromatic and complex, with ripe black cherry and cassis fruit, vanilla, cinnamon, and licorice spice with sweet tobacco, cedar, leather, and camphor notes.
Full-bodied with ripe black cherry and black currant fruit complemented with baking spice and oak notes on entry. Sustained fruit and spice are joined by savory autumn leaf, cedar, and leather on the midpalate with mouth-filling, fine tannins that lead into a long, complex, and balanced finish with attractive fruit, spice, cedar, and subtle camphor notes.
Stainless steel open- and closed-top tanks with twice-daily pump-overs
Barrel-aged for 21 months in 100% new French oak
