tart sweet berry/cherry pie with the crust a bit burnt and some lipstick on the spoon. Good, but left me wishing for a single vineyard upgrade

Like a dark fruit chocolate mixed drink. It's good, not profound but who cares :)

Outstanding and drinking very well. Lots of zin fruit, but what stands out about this wine is the balance. Good acidity keeps it from being ponderous and there is brown sugar, cinammon and other spices to add character. For a zin, I dare say this is elegant. The 15.5% alcohol was completely in check when this was served around 60 deg. However, as it warmed to room temp, I could start to feel a bit of heat (and I'm sensitive to that). Another lovely wine from Carlisle.

I don't drink much Zinfandel anymore but damn this was good. Black berries and boysenberry with anise seed, and chocolate accents. Solid acidity too. Just when I was about to write off this variety......

Great fruit, pepper and spices with good balance, acidity and length. Once again the best zin producer in the new world has hit it right.

No formal notes. Great right out of the bottle. Excellent on day 2. Day 3 there was an abundance of oak which was not perceptible earlier.

Crimson in color. 15.9% ABV. Black fruits, olive brine, game and smoke on the nose. Medium body with strong acidity. Perfect texture and mouthfeel. Blueberries, blackberries and coffee on the palate. Exceptional finish. Drinks younger than the vintage on the label. Should cruise for another 2-3 years.

Opened last night with dinner, with it showing quite a bit of acidity. 'bout 1/2 bottle left, re-tasting a day later. Nice and cool, ideal temp, and FWIW, goes great with a So Cal summer evening. When cool, this exhibits a green melon, with tart apple and lemon acidity, along with what is akin to a licorice/fennel note--just a shading of black licorice, I guess would be my descriptor. As it warms up, a little whiff of coconut/vanilla shows, and the fruit begins to fatten up some more, almost veering towards a yellow apple and lemon peel, hell, and even some orange oil. I tell you what, this is really two different expressions of wine based on the serving temp. At cool temps, I like this much more, as it's more vibrant and energetic. With a warmer temp, it's for me not as good, more easygoing and loses its edge. Given all this, I would say to drink now and serve cooler to really enjoy what is here, FWIW.

Dark ruby in color with a bit of forest floor and oak aromas. Great berry fruit and briery Zin notes. The 15.8% abv is well hidden. This shows some of the roundness that I associate with Rossi Ranch. No hard edges and drinking well now. Best of the very few 2013s I've tried so far.

Bright and crunchy red fruits, this is still a little candied/jammy, and could have used a couple more years.

Opened at the restaurant and sat for 30 minutes before the first pour...fruit forward and smooth...long finish...likely worthy of a higher score if not for the bottle being a bit warm.

Wonderfully zesty and fruit-forward zin, with red fruit profile of blackberries, sour cherries and orange zest. I really enjoyed the acidity streak that flows through the finish, and the tannins have softened enough to compliment the fruit. It's drinking wonderfully now but should continue to evolve nicely over then next two-three years.

Black with a deep ruby rim. Nose of deep blackberry and black cherry, Asian spice, and humus, with a touch of prune. Full bodied and dense on the palate.

A nose of some fruit and spice, dark garnet in color. A medium to full bodied kitchen sink red blend, with cherry, plum, some licorice on spice on finish. Carlisle makes great wines, this missed the mark some, a bit disjointed. www.winelx.com

Unique. Dark violet color with a clear rim. The nose shows spicy black & purple fruit. The palate has a high acid character right away. It gives off more of an apricot note than anything else initially before the spiciness & brambly character emerges. Nimble & focused Zinfandel. Silky tannins. Very nice.
