Carlisle "Bacchi Ranch" Russian River Valley Zinfandel 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Big, spicy and prune nose shows some truffle along with earthy, funky top notes. Air brings out a bit of a black raspberry, candied element with a mere hint of pepper. Soft and broad on entry, this is almost at peak with a touch of dry tannin peeking out on the darkly-fruited palate. There’s a liquory quality to the fruit here, a little plum brandy with chocolate and cedar notes coming out on the moderately long yet dry finish. This has a slight roasted quality to the fruit, with a nice pop of freshness on the finish, but the tannins remain dry. 87pts
