TASTING :: JULY 13, 2018
Isenhower 2014 River Beauty Syrah
Aromas of white pepper, cranberry, blueberry, earth and gravel. Supple and light texture but with focus and intensity. The Syrah has a light oral avors intermingled with blackberries, and cranberries.
Isenhower 2015 Road Less Travelled Cab Franc
Leather nose, taste: blackberry, cherry, hint of vanilla on end, moderate acidity, moderate tannins.
Isenhower 2016 I-Label Malbec
The wine is full-bodied and stylish. Structure, forward fruit and a nice thread of vanilla, cassis and mocha flavors flow on a tidy finish.
Isenhower 2016 I-Label Cab Franc
Dark raspberry color. Nose is plum with something deeper like herbs or leather. Palate has plum, vanilla and blueberry notes.
Isenhower 2017 I-Label Rose
Nose is tart red fruit—cranberry, wild strawberry—with a little bit of underlying minerality. Lots of similar fruit on the palate.
Isenhower 2015 Rara Avis Grenache Blend
Explosive bouquet of flowers and bright fruit, this wine is a nice, light bodied, translucent surprise. Very peppery, too, along with cherries and raspberries.
