2014 / Red

2014 EIGHTY ONE

In 1981, Justin Baldwin began a quest to make fine wines in Paso Robles based on the traditions of the winemaking region of Bordeaux, France. Now, with decades of experience making great wines with this variety, we felt the time had come to release a varietal cabernet sauvignon at the quality level of our most exclusive wine, ISOSCELES Reserve. We chose to name this wine EIGHTY ONE to honor the year we began our journey. Produced in very limited quantities, EIGHTY ONE is a stunning example of a world-class Cabernet Sauvignon that balances power and complexity and, like the best California Cabernet Sauvignon, has an ability to age beautifully.

TASTING NOTES

Appearance: Deep ruby core lightening to medium concentration at the rim with, well stained tearing on the glass.

Aroma: Highly aromatic and showy with black fruit of cherry compote and cassis with spice of vanilla and cinnamon, matched by oak, cedar, graphite, sweet tobacco, camphor and subtle purple floral notes.

Palate: Mouth-filling and full bodied on entry with ripe black fruit of cherry and black currant complexed by layers of baking spice perfectly offset with savory autumn leaf, cedar and mineral graphite elements toward the mid-palate. The finish is extremely long, complex and fresh with a mix of fruit, spice and subtle camphor notes surrounded by firm, chewy tannins. With generous ripe fruit from a warmer vintage kept lively with ample acidity, the 2014 EIGHTY ONE promises earlier accessibility than previous vintages.


FOOD PAIRINGS

Try it a few months after release with a freshly grilled prime ribeye steak or in a few years with a roasted leg of lamb season seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic and rosemary as the tannins resolve over a few years in the cellar.
