Carlisle Sonoma Valley Rossi Ranch Zinfandel California Wine 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This is still fairly tight on the nose with a lightly candied core of grape and red cherry fruit on the nose. There’s a touch of wood spice adding complexity but this is not that giving. A little tight in the mouth but soft and smooth with lovely tannins and balance. The fruit is fairly ripe, showing hints of carob and date over the core of tight blackberry and black plum fruit. The finish is not terribly giving either. This needs time to open but the balance already makes this attractive in a textural way. Air brings out some brandied cherries on the finish. 89pts
