Food Pairings for Carlisle Syrah Sonoma County
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.
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.
<p>One of Sonoma County’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>
