Carlisle Sonoma County Syrah 2013

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

Focused and deeply structured, this glides easily across the blueberry, raspberry, peppered beef and dark Asian spice flavors. The tannins are big but fleshy. Drink now through 2023. 850 cases made.

The 2013 Syrah is a blend of the Papa’s Block and the Steiner Vineyard Syrahs that had been bottled singularly in the past. Deep and rich, with an opaque purple color, it offers up notes of pen ink, blackberries, roasted meats and lard. This big, rich, chunky, succulent Syrah (870 cases produced) should drink nicely for a decade or more.

The 2013 Syrah is one of the real overachievers in this range. Mike Officer did not think his flagship Papa’s Block Syrah was good enough to be bottled on its own, so it was blended with a parcel of Sonoma Mountain fruit for this year’s Syrah. Dark red cherry, plum, smoke and licorice all jump from the glass in a plump, extroverted Syrah to drink while the fruit retains its juiciness. Hints of lavender, violets, mint and dark spices wrap around the finish.
