Carlisle Vineyard Russian River Valley Zinfandel 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Tight on the nose with subtle violet, pepper and red earth notes over a light base of barbecue sauced red berries with a hint of pomegranate seeds. Bright and a little edgy on entry, this is still youthful and tight. The fruit is deep and old-viney with earthy, mushroomy blackberry notes taking center stage. There’s a lovely interplay between the structural elements here, and the fruit plays out right through the taut, balanced and elegant finish. Cinnamon spice and red cherry fruit emerge with air and the texture gets a little more tender, but this really needs 2-3 years in the cellar. 92pts
