2017 iso

The 2017 Iso is a blend of 80% Caber­net Sauvi­gnon, 10% Syrah and 10% Petite Sir­ah, aged 18 months in 50% new French oak. Medi­um to deep ruby, the nose opens to pure crushed red and black cher­ry fruits with loads of flo­ral per­fume — rose petals and lilac — with nuances of soy sauce, dried herbs and cedar. The palate is medi­um-bod­ied, lift­ed and juicy with nuanced fruits in a grainy frame and fin­ish­es long.

Finnish for big”. One of two blends we make that are not entire­ly Rhone blends. Caber­net Sauvi­gnon is the anchor with small amounts of Petite Sir­ah and Syrah. Think Bor­deaux, not Napa.
