Bit of a disappointment given the price point. Turnbull shows much better for less. But still a good wine that stands up well to steak. Good balance and fruit. Just not the depth or complexity that price point would suggest.
Possibly the most approachable Isoscles I have had. Deep indigo in color. Nicely balanced with mocha, raspberry and a hint of cherry n the palate. Well integrated tannins and a medium length finish highlighted by a touch of sweetness. I have had numerous vintages of Isosceles, many older than this and they often seem like they have not quite reached their optimal drinking window. This was in its sweet spot.
Dark ruby colored, medium to full bodied, black berry and black cherry with a red berry tone, hints of sweet mocha and anise and a touch of sweet oak on the back palate with soft tannins provide easy approachable sipping.

(Justin Isosceles) #3; VaynerPAZZZ; COLOR-dark; NOSE-weird; smell some wood, but not over-oaked; blueberries; a little chalky; very dark; PALATE-a little over-oaked for me (the Oak Monster makes an appearance); the oak is prominent, but this is a big wine; a lot of bitter dark chocolate on my palate; tea flavors; huge plum flavors; very grape ape; a little disjointed; very big; very young; many will like this as it has a "delicious factor"; a really solid wine; GV-88+
