15.0% alcohol. Fuller bodied, concentrated, plush, ripe, and smooth with the tannins seemingly largely resolved. Offers up a profile of purple/black fruits, white pepper, violets, and an earthy/meaty suggestion. To me, a bit more complex and interesting aromatically than on the palate.
Bright purple in color. 15.0% ABV. 100% Syrah from the Santa Lucia Highlands. Powerful nose of black fruits, smoke and flowers. Super fresh with fabulous acidity. Iron, game, blood, violets and white pepper on the palate. Great finish. More Northern Rhone like than I would typically expect from Carlisle. Drink over the next 3-5 years.
