2013 Carlisle Syrah Sonoma County

P&P. Wow, this wine is hitting on all cylinders! While still young, it's showing very well...blackberry and black cherry fruit, earthiness and leather, with some barrel notes as well. Drinking well now, but will continue to evolve for 5-10 years. Drink 2016-2025.

Big, effusive, layered nose of sweet black fruit, smoked meat, camphor and pronounced spice. Palate is medium-to-full bodied with big black fruit and racy, juicy acidic cut. Terrific lift and persistence. The palate flavors are more straight forward than the exotic, enticing nose. I suspect this will get even better. Amazing for a <$20 appellation syrah!

Finished off this bottle that I had previously coravined a glass from. Love the deep ruby color and savory, spicy notes coupled with blue fruit. This was my only bottle and I will make sure to get more than one (hopefully) next time it is offered.

An interesting white blend. Light yellow/gold in color. The nose has lemons, some fig and a bit of soap. On the palate, medium bodied. It is a round wine but enough acidity to carry the food. Lemony flavors. Not as mineral driven as I remembered a prior vintage but quite nice. Good finish.

Bursting with ripe red fruit and spice. Needs some time to settle down. Try again in a year or so.

Popped and poured and drank over two days. This is my first bottle but my experience with Carlisle leads me to believe that this wine has softened since release and is in the zone right now. The oak I associate with Carlisle has also integrated. The result is a pillow soft texture with sweet dark fruits, vanilla and zin spice. The wine is smooth and luxurious while retaining the signature Carlisle zin goodness.

One of the best bottles of Zinfandel I have tasted. Not overpowered by heat or fruit. Red fruit (cherry, raspberry), and some floral notes. Nice smooth finish. Drank over two nights - opened just a bit for the second night.

Not sure if I have an off bottle here ... nose of mixed red berries, pepper and alcohol. Palate offers up red berries with a thin, almost watery mouthfeel. Finish is short and tart and bitter. Just not up to normal Carlisle standards - is it the vintage?

15.6% abv. Deep ruby with exceptionally inticing aromas. Extremely concentrated red and blue fruit flavors, with rather, blood and spice. Lingers on the palate. Should improve for several more years. I'm so focused on Carlisle Zin that I sometimes overlook the exceptional Syrah.

I coravin poured half the bottle into a decanter to pair with my slow braised beef chili and it was a killer pairing. The wine opened up with the hour of air. Consumed the rest of the bottle over two nights a few days later. It was probably at its best on the last glass. Terrific wine at a great price. I would love to wait a couple years before opening some of our other bottles but it is so tasty now.

Short decant. Classic zin nose of ripe red and black fruit, with a light floral note. Small amount of Carignane gives this a fuller and earthier feel. Bit of candied raspberry on the finish. Not a bashful zin. Drinking great now, but has the stuffing to evolve for a good 8-10 years more.

Youthful ruby color with a touch of purple. Subdued aromatic that opened up with a bit of air. Nice juicy acidity and soft tannins. Abundant red and black fruit. I enjoyed this more than the previous straight Saitone Ranch zin.

Just a bit young, but oh so good. Bedrock might call this one of their Heritage wines since it is a field blend of Zinfandel and at least 3 other varietals. The blackberry aftertaste is the most remarkable aspect of this wine. It lingers for about a minute in the mouth. It otherwise is very pure, fresh, and of a very deep purple color.
