Carlisle Winery & Vineyards Bennett Valley Syrah 2005

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Deep and dark smelling, still smells a bit like a barrel sample, a touch animale, a bit of well integrated wood an edge of vanilla and foxy grapiness. Big but seamless on entry still tight but revealing lovely flavors of dark berry fruit, mineral tones, layered and big but the balance and integration is excellent. Lush and deep and this improved through dinner.

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.
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
