2012 Isosceles Reserve

91 POINTS: VINOUS - Glass-staining ruby. Heady smoke- and spice-tinged aromas of cherry pie, cassis, potpourri, pipe tobacco and allspice, with a touch of vanilla slowly emerging. Juicy and penetrating, with intense black and blue fruit flavors that spread out and stain the palate. The sweet, gently tannic finish displays excellent clarity and lift and a lingering note of candied rose.

94 POINTS: WINE ENTHUSIAST - The Paso pioneer's annual bottling of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc does not disappoint, offering aromas of plump, dark blueberry, tart Bing cherry and bay leaf. The palate offers crushed herbs—from oregano and thyme to rosemary and dill—alongside more blueberry fruit and a solid yet smooth tannic structure.

2013 Isosceles Reserve

90 POINTS: WINE SPECTATOR - Complex aromas of dusty herb, cedar, loamy earth and supple, juicy blackberry make for an engaging drink that's smooth and silky. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Drink now through 2030.

91 POINTS: WINE ADVOCATE - Composed of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc and 5% Merlot, the 2013 Isosceles Reserve gives a very deep garnet-black color and nose of crème de cassis, baked black berries, dried mulberries and preserved plums with hints of cedar box and Provence herbs, plus a waft of rare beef. The full-bodied palate is still wearing a lot of oak, with very firm, chewy tannins supporting the ripe fruit, finishing on a woody note.

93 POINTS: WINE ENTHUSIAST - There's an impressive fresh quality to the nose of this blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc and 5% Merlot, with aromas of blackberry, juicy black plum, dill, lilacs and a dusting of vanilla. The fruit-forward palate grabs the attention immediately with black currant, pepper dust, roast beef crust and more purple flowers, with tannins and acidity rising strong on the finish. 

2014 Isosceles Reserve

94 POINTS: WINE ENTHUSIAST - There is a focused intensity of black plum, elderberry and black-cherry pie on the nose of this blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 4% Malbec. A ripe black-cherry flavor meets with licorice, vanilla and fudge on the palate, where polished tannins provide ample structure
