"1997 Justin "Isoceles" -- (Cab, Cab Franc, and Merlot) - My impression of the nose was light earth and "railroad ties" met with copious amounts of sweet smelling flowers and chocolate (a construction worker on his way to a hot date?). In the mouth, the wine was "wet" with fast flowing raspberry, chocolate, and cherry. The flavors are sweet and easy, even though there seems to be a good grip of tannins and acid about the wine. The finish is marked by a bubble gum (Bubble Yum) element. Sweet and a bit oak driven for my tastes, I think it was embraced by many as "right now" wine surrounded by many "agers"...certainly tasty in its style. "
