iso is a Cabernet Sauvignon dominant blend with Petite Sirah and Syrah.
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.
