Carlisle Syrah Papa's Block 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Deep, jammy, vanilla, smoky, peppery jerky, spicy boysenberry fruit, really white peppery and dried meaty with a hint of milk chocolate. Packed with fruit, fairly seamless in the mouth with a wonderful intensity and purity to the dark berry fruit tones. The tannins and acid are there but it’s frankly hard to judge either since they are so well integrated and balanced. The fruit is dark, rich and surprisingly fresh. The tannin and red cherry fruit tones slowly ooze out, and a nice vanillin top note emerges in the glass. The finish is long and laced with minerals, olive brine and tar. This needs a bit more time, say another 2 years but it verging on excellent already 90pts

Carlisle Winery:
Welcome to Carlisle Winery & Vineyards! We are a small Sonoma County winery specializing in the production of old-vine, vineyard designated zinfandels and red Rhone varieties (syrah, grenache, mourvèdre, and petite sirah). While we like our wines to be bold, rich, and intensely flavored, each reflecting a sense of place, its origins in the vineyard, we also strive to create wines of balance, complexity, and perhaps most importantly, pleasure.
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

Meaty, deep, and masculine smelling with a touch of buried wood and herb. Trademark seamlessness in the mouth with excellent balance and good impact to the notes of grilled meats and dark spicy, plummy fruit on the palate. Still a bit wound up and needs time to relax but excellent raw materials.

The best word I can come up with this is "prodigious." It's a big, burly syrah with plenty of heft and alcohol. Lots of deep, rich, dark fruits. Enjoyed it, but also looking forward to what it will have to offer in the coming years.

Spicy, slightly hot, peppered nose. Bright, red, juicy, spicy, leader, chocolate and coffee. All of the players in a delicious Syrah are right there. It's deep, dark, with blackberry for miles.

This Carlisle syrah like their zinfandels is all about texture and intensity of flavor. Super dense, rich and packed full of black fruit flavors, smoke, meat and tar. Very seamless wine from beginning to end. No highs or lows; just a long, clean and lasting finish. Needs some time to open up, but when it does, oh yeah mama.

The 2006 Syrah Cardiac Hill comes from a steep, rocky, north-facing vineyard in Bennett Valley. Primordial, tasting more like a two-month old barrel sample than a finished wine, the Cardiac Hills displays notes of crushed rocks, black fruits, tar, Ch... Robert Parker. A Syrah wine from California in USA. 2006 Carlisle Winery Syrah Cardiac Hill 750ml
