Carlisle Zinfandel Sonoma Valley Rossi Ranch 2003

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Sweet berried fruits on the nose with a touch of Christmas spice, toasty oak and a lovely suggestion of sweetness that recalls red rope licorice. The tannin here is essentially resolved, leaving a fairly rich yet quite transparent core of macerated red cherry fruit framed with cedary and slightly spicy oak. This is pleasant but the tannins that are still here do grow with air and the wine hasn’t developed much in the way of complexity. 87pts
