  • "When the moon hits your eye/like a big pizza pie/that's amore."As we ate our breakfast on Sunday morning at the Imperial Hotel in Amador City, the soundtrack subtly changed.  Last night at dinner and halfway through breakfast, the soundtrack was from the same era, but Sam Cooke sent us, and Ray Charles warned us about women.  This morning, with...

  • Carlisle Zinfandel Sonoma County 2003

    Snoothrank:

    Was a bit anxious about this one since it was a gift from a neighbor/friend and storage was questionable. Initial taste on opening was that this was a bit "hot", which at 15.8% abv wasn't unexpected. Visual inspection showed only slight bricking on the rim with a nice ruby core. On the nose is more heat and some smoke and dry earth. After 1-2 ho... Read More

    Wine review by vin0vin0


  • While I'm letting a 2003 Carlisle zin air out a bit to go with dinner, I grabbed this interesting wine out of the fridge. There's some Petit Manseng in SW France and some in VA but this is a NC wine from our beloved Yadkin Valley AVA. Light gold in color, there's some interesting floral and petrol aromatics not unlike a slightly older Riesling. ... Read More

Oh, and there's Carlisle, W-S, Gracianna, and a host of stuff I barely get to stick my toes in.  You get the point--kudos for all they've done.  If I was going to another old wine, old vine, sure.&nbs Read More

Mouth is juicy, rich, round and lively with sweet fruit, acidity and chalky tannins. The intense fruit holds on for a long time making this hard to put down.

  • I kind of stumbled around and buried the lede there, but I was trying to say ... ... over time, if we assume Carlisle's numbers, that amount isn't perceptible to us, since it's not perceptible as a difference in new wine--absolutely no one would be able to tell you if the label is accurate or not.  I think wines that have any outsized trait t...

    Forum post in the topic A Wine's ABV Over Time?


  • There was a conversation on WB started on this topic...I had always assumed alcohol dissipated over time slowly. I believe Mike Officer posted a range, referencing one of the 1st growth chateau in Bordeaux, of 0.3% - 0.8% every 20 years. That number sounded reasonable to me, but I'm not aware of the facts surrounding this.I kind of figure old wi... Read More

  • 2011 Carlisle White Blend, 66% Semillon, 24% Muscadelle, 10% Chasselas Dore' (or Palomino, from 118 yr. old vines at Saitone Ranch, RRV). Not to be outdone, the Semillon comes from Monte Rosso, planted in 1886, and Pagani Ranch Muscadelle planted in 1920. You gotta be kidding me...I'm glad I looked this up after my first few sips. Talk about try... Read More
