Carlisle Syrah Sonoma County 2010
Very dark ruby-purple. Verging on opaque. Precise, pure aromas of blackberry, sage, and spice. Quite poised on the palate, with plenty of mouth-watering black fruits that persist into the violet-tinged finish. For all its explosiveness, displays remarkable finesse and elegance. To borrow an old phrase, an iron fist in a velvet glove! Enjoy 2013 through at least 2022. Alcohol 14.9%. 346 cases produced.
