Carlisle Zinfandel Carlisle Vineyard 2004

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Saturated ruby-red. Exotic, roasted nose hints at chocolate and black walnut. Then very suave and creamy-sweet in the mouth, with superripe black raspberry flavor and substantial noble tannins. Officer describes this as our grand cru zin but I find... Stephen Tanzer. A Zinfandel wine from California in USA. 2004 Carlisle Winery Zinfandel Carlisle Vineyard 750ml

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.

The 2004 Zinfandel Carlisle Vineyard boasts a deep ruby/purple color as well as a beautiful, sweet bouquet of sandalwood, white chocolate, crushed pepper, black raspberries, black currants, garrigue, and spicy oak. This is a seriously rich wine that displays a good underpinning of acidity, which provides a mineral-like character. It should drink well for 7-8 years. The alcohol levels in the 2004 Zinfandels range between 15.5% and 16.5%, but much to Mike Officer s credit, there is no trace of hotness in these wines. Readers should not hesitate to get on Carlisle s mailing list before the world discovers what compelling beverages are being produced here.
