Carlisle Sonoma County Syrah 2014

Member Review by blondon:

1999 Carlisle Syrah Sonoma County - USA, California, Sonoma County (1/18/2009) Popped, decanted 30 minutes, drank over 2 hours. Rich purple color, clings to the glass on the swirl before slowly dripping down in thick legs. Nose of rare roast beef, ripe plum tomatoes, tapenade and cocoa. Lush, rich, thick and smooth in the mouth, a blend of dark fruits, coffee, smoke, blood and minerality. Long finish.

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.

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.

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.

<p>One of Sonoma County&rsquo;s best vintages to date, this unfiltered wine is a deep purple-magenta color and has an intense array of aromas of blackberry, smoked game, black olives, and violets, characteristic of Syrah wines. Its flavors are rich and full, including mainly blackberry and violet. A clear, crisp finish on account of medium-bodied, smooth tannins.</p>
