Justin Isosceles 2005 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Nose of crushed blueberries and currants

Rich, juicy core of fruit on the palate

Finish of chocolate and mixed berries

This wine is a real treat in good years, and the 2005 tastes quite good. It's ripe, fruity, rich, a bit jammy, but also polished.

I like to think of this wine as an alternative to a Napa meritage or blend. It shows what can be produced in the up-and-coming Paso Robles region. Prices for this wine tend to be in the $60 range. Raise a glass!
