Isosceles Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1998

Aromas of cherry pie, stewed tomato and dried herbs. Super silky, medium body and medium acidity. Quite lovely. #justin #isosceles #bordeauxblend — 2 years ago

Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Charles (Chad) Bucklin

Not quite opaque but med + concentration and a deep ruby core with little rim variation. Med + intensity and med complexity. A fruit bomb on the nose and palate. Ripe/jammy black and fruit. Seductive and yummy with smooth tannins and med - acid. Alcohol is well integrated. Med length. Just plain old delicious. #justin #pasorobles #cabernetsauvignon #fruitbomb #californiacab #ctbucklinwine — 3 years ago

Silver Oak

Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

I'm not here to knock Silver Oak, as they can make some very good wines and they are great for Napa Valley. The 2011 Alexander Valley isn't my favorite. It's by no means horrible, but it's quite acidic and tart. — 4 years ago

@Neil Barham, I agree to an extent, but the harvesting method I refer to was happening while he was there. In my opinion, quality started to fall short after 1995. I don't see how you can produce good juice with indiscriminate harvesting methods like what SO use today.
