Carlisle Sonoma County Syrah 2015

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bold nose of dark, rich and fresh fruits is nicely accentuated by notes of woodspice, hung game and a nice dried vegetal tone. In the mouth this is smaller that one might expect but superbly polished and with great acidity and supple tannins giving it volume without weight. The bright flavors of black raspberry are edged in subtle chocolate, earth and tobacco tones but never interfere with the purity of the fruit expression. This is just damn fun to drink! 93pts

Carlisle Winery:
Welcome to Carlisle Winery & Vineyards! We are a small Sonoma County winery specializing in the production of old-vine, vineyard designated zinfandels and red Rhone varieties (syrah, grenache, mourvèdre, and petite sirah). While we like our wines to be bold, rich, and intensely flavored, each reflecting a sense of place, its origins in the vineyard, we also strive to create wines of balance, complexity, and perhaps most importantly, pleasure.

Dark purple in the glass. Fairly big introduction of dark fruit on entry. A very rich, mouth-filling wine. Savory and meaty mid-palate. Stiff tannin. Good acid. Surprisingly, nice and easy on the back of the throat. It may have many years in it, but drinking it now is a lot of fun.
