Quite ripe on the nose with fruit that has moved into the dried end of the spectrum with notes of fig and date accented with black pepper and thick, medical herb-laced grape notes. There’s some smoke here as well, and a little roasted hickory with an attractive carob element. Soft and broad in the mouth, this is packed with fruit and some dry tannin, all wrapped up in slightly pruny dried berry fruit. There’s a nice layered feel here and some good earthy complexity, with lovely red fruits making an appearance on the back end. Then, the finish kicks in the deep boysenberry and blackberry fruit that’s zesty and fresh. The dried fruit element turns into a sort of caramel and chocolate coating. This grows on you pretty quickly, though there is a noticeable heat on the finish. 93pts

The 2006 Zinfandel Pietro's Ranch (from a vineyard planted in 1905, and in this blend, 85% Zinfandel and 15% mixed blacks) is perhaps my favorite wine of all the Zinfandels. Absolutely seamless, an example of Zinfandel haute couture, this stunningly ... Robert Parker. A Zinfandel wine from California in USA. 2006 Carlisle Winery Zinfandel Pietro's Ranch 750ml
