Carlisle Zinfandel Carlo's Ranch 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Dark black fruit and black pepper spice greet the nose with a meaty, leathery cast to the cola and macerated, floral scented dark cherry fruit. Big and plump on entry, this rolls over the palate with intense, fresh iron accented wild berry fruit. There are hints of juniper and earthy spices here as well as a slightly cola edge that leads to a cool, crisp, snappy finish. Very savory on the finish with some wood tannins that try to break through, but the bitter and medicinal-toned black cherry fruit powers through the long finish. This is just great, complex, balanced and fruity enough yet full of savory notes. Love this. 94pts

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.
