91 points "91-93 points Robert Parker: "Far more showy was a barrel sample of the 2008 Isosceles Reserve, composed of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot. It exhibits sweeter tannins along with dense black fruits intermixed with charcoal, creme de cassis, roasted herbs, and spice box. It is a big, thick, juicy, nearly over-the-top wine with impressive balance." (02/10) "

92 points "From K & L Wines: "Long Justin's signature wine, the 2005 Isosceles blends 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc and 7% Merlot into a distinguished, complex wine. Although quite young, this crimson-colored wine's nose is already quite nuanced, casting off aromas of boysenberries, cassis, espresso and mint with earthy sweet notes of new leather, caramel and vanilla. In the mouth the attack is soft and sweet, giving way to a fruit-filled mouthcoating mid-palate with coffee, butterscotch and graphite flavors that linger through the finish. If you can't wait to drink this one, decant it for a few hours first, otherwise, find it a home in your cellar for a good while, this will continue to evolve for the next 10-15 years.""

"Tasting Notes: The 2004 ISOSCELES is inky blue with a slight purple overtone around the rim. Aromas of blueberry, black cherry and cassis fill the glass. The entry is soft, velvety and filled with bright fruit. Seamless, lengthy tannins scream across the palate showing the youth and potential longevity of this wine. Layers of complexity evolve into a finish that combines flavors of coffee, dark fruit and hints of vanilla and caramel. The 2004 ISOSCELES is very young, and will continue to evolve from now through 2020. Vintage Summary: The 2004 vintage began with relatively low rainfall. Dry soils and a warm February resulted in an early bud break. Spring generated ideal weather, limiting heat spikes and allowing vines to produce full, dense canopies. In early June, we removed laterals and selective leaves to manipulate the canopy, and allow filtered light to penetrate the clusters. The warmest summer since 1997 produced consecutive months of 90-degree temperatures. Veraison came early and was very even, allowing us to drop any discolored or green fruit left prior to harvest. August was nearly perfect, with only one day jumping above 100 degrees. September and October remained generally warm, providing a perfect climate for harvesting ripe fruit while still maintaining natural acidity. "
