Carlisle Zinfandel Russian River Valley Old Vines 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

91-94 points Robert Parker (Oct 2015). 91-93 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): The 2014 Zinfandel Old Vine is another superb, entry-level wine from Carlisle and proprietor Mike Officer. Succulent and expressive, the 2014 offers tons of near and medium-term appeal in the forward, fruit-driven style that is the signature of the Russian River. A host of sweet red cherry and plum notes wrap around plush, inviting finish. The vineyard sites are Banfield, Saitone, Carlisle, Montafi and Papera. (Feb 2016)

Red fruit on entry—red plum—with a violet-like flowery component. A lot of “bramble” reminiscent of 1970s-80s zins. Some very serious tannins, which, my guess will take some time to calm down. That, along with good acid content, suggests that I should have listened to common wisdom about Carlisles and let it lay on its side for several more years.
