Carlisle on Snooth

  • Carlisle Zinfandel Sonoma Valley Rossi Ranch 2003

    Snoothrank:

    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 ... Read More

  • Carlisle Pietro's Ranch Zinfandel 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Quite ripe on the nose with fruit that has moved into the dried end of the spectrum with notes of fig and date accented with black pepper and thick, medical herb-laced grape notes. Theres some smoke here as well, and a little roasted hickory with an attractive carob element. Soft and broad in the mouth, this is packed with fruit and some dry tan... Read More

  • 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 "Bacchi Ranch" Russian River Valley Zinfandel 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Big, spicy and prune nose shows some truffle along with earthy, funky top notes. Air brings out a bit of a black raspberry, candied element with a mere hint of pepper. Soft and broad on entry, this is almost at peak with a touch of dry tannin peeking out on the darkly-fruited palate. Theres a liquory quality to the fruit here, a little plum bran... Read More

  • 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
