Carlisle on Snooth

  • Outhere once said that Carlisle Zins need at least five years. This is a darned good wine.   It is fairly complex. Opening red fruit--berries, plums--is complemented by a woody bitter sensation. Tannins are complemented by acids. I'm enjoying this wine, but I really think that more (lots. possibly) sideways positioning would yield a nicely integ... Read More

  • Carlisle Montafi Ranch Russian River Zinfandel 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Fairly complex Zinfandel. Lots of opening fruitsome berry but, also stone fruit. Then the old Zinfandel bramble from the 1980slike sticks and stems. This provides a bitter sensation to contrast with the sweetness of the opening fruit. Nice stiff tannin and sturdy acid. Im one who is eager to pop the cork on my wines, and while I am, in fact...

I found this '03 Carlisle petite sirah and thought of all the wine here this has the best chance of still being drinkable.  Unfortunately, the cork broke into pieces and half of it stayed put.  I found an '05 Four Vines zin and managed to get the cork out of that o...

  • Bedrock Wine Co. Carlisle Vineyard Zinfandel 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Very surprising, subtle entry on the tongue. Some red berry fruit, but not, necessarily any particular berry that I can pick out. Nice. Good tannin and sprightly acid. Interesting that I seem to get more fruitand its stone fruiton the rear palate than on the tip of the tongue. Good job, Bedrock. Read More
