Carlisle Zinfandel Sonoma County Monte Rosso Vineyard 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): (15.8% alcohol): Bright purple. Exotic, seductively perfumed bouquet of blueberry, boysenberry, cherry-cola and incense, with a spicy underpinning. Sweet and silky, offering spicy, deeply pitched dark berry flavors and a sexy floral nuance. Shows impressive energy as well as depth, finishing with excellent persistence and a touch of bitter chocolate. (May 2012)

The 2010 Zinfandel Monte Rosso Vineyard is a fabulous example of this heritage California variety as captured in one of the state’s top sites. Sweet, dark and imposing, the 2010 boasts stunning depth and concentration. Firm mountain tannins frame the huge, enveloping finish. From start to finish the Monte Rosso is pure distinction and class. Anticipated maturity: 2015–2030.
