GATC, I was truly amazed at the logic behind the score of the 1997 Isosceles from RP. I usually am in agreement with the majority of his marks, but I will say the 88pts (not 89) for the 97 was clearly undeserving. My stepfather had the 97 Isosceles and the 97 Insignia side-by-side a few weeks ago and said the Isosceles was claerly better drinking right now??????? I do trust his palate.
Now something interesting I noticed on my 1997 Isosceles is the blending. My bottles show the Blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Cab Franc, and 18% Merlot. In the last issue of The Advocate he states the 1997.....a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, and 9% Cab Franc, my question is.....what was he given to drink?
