  • I completely love the synergy between these winemaker/vineyard guys. I have walked and sipped at Bedrock Vineyard with Chris and it is really special to see the wineries that have vines and plots set aside for their purposes. In a way it is interesting to see how different the iteration is with largely the same fruit under individual winemakers.

  • A big and fruit forward zin. Full, open nose of blackberry jam and fresh cut blackberries with spice. Palate is plush with round forward fruit and moderate acidity. Big and easy drinking. Not as structured or complex as other Carlisle zins, but enjoyable none the less.

  • Popped and poured at my sister's house for Passover. Almost impenetrably dark. Very nice and powerful with zero sweetness. She prefers the slightly sweeter Turley zins but this is more to my liking. Dark, brooding black and dark red fruit with some minerality and meatiness. There was also an herbal component and I thought I got a whiff of violet on the nose. Complex wine. Average length finish. This was an excellent pairing with the brisket, although it would have gone even better with my brisket the next day, which was cooked in a mass of caramelized onions and had a darker gravy. I'm a tough grader. Others might have gone higher.

  • Greatly improved with age. Became more concentrated with rich red fours shied through . Good stuff

  • Good stuff from Carlisle. Great black and blue fruit. Still with a special forces backbone but quite enjoyable. Fred would give a big yabba dabba do to this Bedrock wine.
