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. – Description from iskicm

  • Carlisle Zinfandel Carlo's Ranch 2006

    Snoothrank:

    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 co... Read More

  • Carlisle Winery Zinfandel Gold Mine Ranch 2006

    Snoothrank:

    This is slightly exotic on the nose with subtle Middle Eastern spice notes, a touch of violet florals and candied cherry and pomegranate fruit all over a touch of cinnamon. Smooth and silky on entry, this then firms up a bit in the mouth. The tannins are here but ripe and well balanced by juicy acidity, all wrapped in candy apple and blackberry ... Read More

  • Carlisle Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley 2007

    Snoothrank:

    This has some chocolate, vanilla-laced oak on the nose along with a slightly beefy, licorice-tinged raspberry core of fruit and a slight candied cherry top note. Smooth and surprisingly bright on entry, this has lovely ripe tannins and a bit of heat on the palate supporting lightly brambly raspberry and blackberry fruit. The finish is bright, cl... Read More

  • Okay.  This question might be stretching the boundaries of what should be discussed in writing.  (Ummm... actually, this question clearly crosses the boundary of what should be discussed in writing, but what the hell...)Where (or to whom) do experienced Snoothers go to get the inside scoop on wines that are cellar worthy but have yet to be profe...

  • Carlisle Syrah Dry Creek Valley 2007

    Snoothrank:

    There's a lot to offer in the aroma in this wine - deep black earthiness with plum and licorice. Oak notes and strawberries too, along with some herbal notes. The palate has a semi-astringic tannic approach with plum fruit showing in the middle. Very satisfying! Read More

    Wine review by Chris Carpita


  • I recently found a relatively new grass roots wine shop/loft in LA named the Redd Collection, founded by two friends who met while working at Wally's in the 90's. They're doing themed tastings once a week on Friday/Saturday, and this weekend featured a tasting of Ridge Zinfandel's from 1973, 91, 92, 94, and 95. How could I pass this up? Luckily,... Read More

  • I get so caught up in work that I often neglect to check in here. I'm apologizing about that!  I'm back afer a few weeks in New Zealand, which sucks up all my time not only during the trip but for the weeks prior and, as it looks, most of the week after my return. Before you ask, new Zealand was great. A young wine industry but one that has made... Read More
