Carlisle Carlisle Vineyard Zinfandel Russian River Valley 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This is red and bricky on the nose with a lovely, dusty earth quality over brambly, tobacco-toned, musky wild berry fruit and a hint of salted plum. This is so well balanced, bright and juicy with lovely, ripe tannins supporting the earthy, carob-inflected core of dried strawberry and plum fruit that shows mushroomy edges. Silky and frankly elegant on the finish with a lovely balance of earthy fruit and sweet red raspberry notes. This is poised and complex with spicy cinnamon and cocoa notes on the long finish. Yes, it shows a touch of heat, but this is lovely. 94pts
