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.

A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2008 Carlisle Winery Three Birds Rhone Blend 750ml
A stunning blend, the 2004 Three Birds is Mike Officer s version of a Chateauneuf du Pape. It exhibits southern Rhone-like characteristics of garrigue, kirsch liqueur, pepper, and sandalwood. Full-bodied, powerful, and rich, with a lovely, plump texture, silky tannin, and a heady finish, it can be consumed over the next 4-5 years. Readers should not hesitate to get on Carlisle s mailing list before the world discovers what compelling beverages are being produced here.
