Bright with a deeply concentrated purple/ruby core that lightens at the rim, with persistent, thick, slow-forming tears that stain the glass as they form.
Aromatic with notes of baked black cherry, ripe blackberry, and juicy black plum, with suggestions of toasted oak and vanilla followed by dried violet and subtle mint notes.
Full-bodied with smooth baked blackberry, mission fig, and black currant flavors on the entry. The savory, complex midpalate features dried herbs, cedar, and wild mushroom followed by saddle leather and exotic toasted spice notes carried by balanced freshness and abundant velvety tannins that lead to a long, complex finish of sustained ripe berries, barrel spice, and a fresh herbal note.
Stainless steel open- and closed-top tanks with UV43 yeast and twice-daily mixing
Barrel-aged for 26 months in 100% new French oak
SUGGESTED FOOD PAIRINGS
The 2020 ISOSCELES Reserve is rich and powerful without losing its grace or elegance, with both luscious fruit and grounding savory elements. This wine is rich and complex enough to be enjoyed on its own but is a perfect match with a classic filet mignon with traditional sides.
