    September 6, 2014 - Beautiful nose of blackberries and violets. Smooth and silky in the mouth, layers of fruit and flowers. Drinking wonderfully now.

    August 3, 2014 - I should have decanted this one. It just needed some air. The longer it sat, the more it came together. At first it was too jammy and not pulled together. Still delicious, but not satisfying because I knew it could have been better if I would have waited or decanted it.

    July 26, 2014 - In this line-up we had this Lingenfelder vs. a 2010 Bedrock Paganie Ranch Heirloom. Both decanted straight from the cellar. In many ways a role reversal. The Carlisle was lighter and elegant and the Bedrock was a beast. This was my second bottle of the Pagani Heirloom and I will have to remind myself to wait longer before opening the next bottle. Nose of blueberries, brambles and red fruit, huge body, but the firm tannins are well balanced with the acid and the fruit. Lovely finish. Decanting a must, also stand for at least an hour as this is the poster child of an unfined wine.

    June 17, 2014 - Strained for sediment and splash decant ... Cloudy, purple pour with a nose bursting with bright red and black fruits. Blueberry, plum and cherry opens on the palate, followed by a bit of creme de cassis. Silky smooth; lush and rich. Ripe and ready to go, but not over the top. Very well balanced. Not at all hot. Really amazing Bedrock Heirloom example that is positively singing right now. Love it!
