Carlisle Zinfandel Russian River Valley Carlisle Vineyard 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Dark and earthy on the nose with lovely integrated wood spice notes, rich briar and tobacco notes and a base of spiced dry cherries. Velvety in the mouth with lovely, nuanced briery red fruits and a hint of plum accenting the raspberries and cherries that gain lovely wood spice notes on the backend. The finish is long, detailed and full with ripe fruit and integrated wood ending on a note of cinnamon and candied cherries. 15.2% and not a hint of heat. This is terrific and in a very good place today. The fruit shows nice richness, hinting at sweetness yet remain fresh and bright in the mouth. 92pts
