  • Carlisle Zinfandel Montafi Ranch Russian River Valley 2007

    Snoothrank:

    This is smoky and a bit nutty on the nose with a touch of oyster shell accenting the orange oil and bittersweet chocolate, lightly smoky plum and blackberry fruit. Cool and taut on entry, this is tight, revealing only a glimpse of lovely pure blackberry fruit. Another Montafi bottling that shows great balance and freshness of fruit though here t... Read More

  • Carlisle Zinfandel Montafi Ranch 2006

    Snoothrank:

    A bit earthy on the nose with savory barbecue sauce notes enlivened by a hint of floral herb, all coming together over spicy, briary, brambly blackberry fruit that has some vanilla streaks lingering in the background. Classic Zinfandel nose. This is exciting on the palate, transparent yet large-scaled with fine-grained tannins and juicy acidity ... Read More

  • Carlisle Vineyard Russian River Valley Zinfandel 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Tight on the nose with subtle violet, pepper and red earth notes over a light base of barbecue sauced red berries with a hint of pomegranate seeds. Bright and a little edgy on entry, this is still youthful and tight. The fruit is deep and old-viney with earthy, mushroomy blackberry notes taking center stage. Theres a lovely interplay between the... Read More

  • Carlisle Carlisle Vineyard Zinfandel Russian River Valley 2006

    Snoothrank:

    This is red and bricky on the nose with a lovely, dusty earth quality over brambly, tobacco-toned, musky wild berry fruit and a hint of salted plum. This is so well balanced, bright and juicy with lovely, ripe tannins supporting the earthy, carob-inflected core of dried strawberry and plum fruit that shows mushroomy edges. Silky and frankly eleg... 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

  • Carlisle Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Rich black fruit and coffee notes in the aroma, very oak driven but not overly oaky. The approach is soft and balanced, with red fruit and honey touches on the finish. Read More

  • 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
