Justin Isosceles has been one of the closest things to a can't-miss domestic Bordeaux blend over the last decade. Add the fact that it so much less expensive than most of its Napa brethren and you have a great bargain on your hands. This 2006 blend is 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc and 5% Merlot, leading to a much richer and fuller bodied wine than in recent years, when the bottling has been a smidge less Cab-driven. Full of mocha, anise, graphite and highlighted with some lovely white floral laces the nose is wildly expressive for a wine this young. I can only imagine how this facet will build complexity over time. Rich and loaded with plump, lush flavors of blackberry, coffee bean, pastilles, kirsch and hardwood smoke this has plenty to please now, but would be served well with another month or two in bottle, although 7-8 years would also not be out of question. This is a perfect wine for grilled meats and strong flavored California cuisine or for those that would like to impress their Napa-driven Cabernet friends.
