2010 Carlisle Syrah Papa's Block

Community Tasting Note


Monday, April 2, 2012 - This was decanted an hour before drinking. Nice nose of blackberries and French oak. Agreed with other notes, there is a serious yum factor here with lush blackberries, plums, mid-palate transitioning to dark chocolate, and finishing with a smokiness and exotic spice. This could use some time for the oak to integrate and become less obtrusive, but I don't know how to comment on the age-worthiness of a wine like this, as this begs to be drunk and my remaining bottles will be gone within the next couple years..
