Carlisle 09 Dry Creek Zinfandel


External Review
01/03/2012

A knock-out effort, the 2002 Zinfandel Dry Creek (a 350-case cuvee of 79% Zinfandel and 21% Petite Sirah) boasts notes of white flowers, blueberries, blackberries, and pepper offered in a full-bodied, super well-endowed format. With great purity and texture as well as a 30 second finish, this beauty will drink well for 8ndash;10 years.

Primarily from the Teldeschi Ranch Vineyard (planted in 1885), the 2007 Zinfandel Dry Creek includes some Petite Sirah and Carignane in the blend. The elegantly-styled 2007 reveals a Burgundian-like, complex bouquet of flowers, red and black fruits, sweet forest floor, and a hint of spice. Medium to full-bodied, pure, and lively, it should drink nicely for 4ndash;5 years.

Glass-staining ruby. Sexy aromas of candied dark berries, dried flowers, incense and cola. Broad, expansive and sweet, offering lush blackcurrant and mulberry flavors and an exotic note of candied rose. Shows noteworthy depth but has impressive energy as well, finishing with strong spiciness and mineral cut. Therersquo;s a lot going on here already. About two-thirds of the vines are over a century old, according to Officer. The alcohol level here is 15.5% but I donrsquo;t detect any excess heat.

Supple and juicy, with floral raspberry and sassafras aromas following through to elegant, lingering flavors of black cherry, toasty caramel and brown spice. Drink now through 2016.
