Not my favorite Carlisle. A nice wine, and definitely enjoyable, but lacks the character of other 2010s. Bigger fruit than most, lacking the acid that most of their efforts carry (and what I believe makes them so special for the price). Definitely has some life ahead of it and I will be holding under the hope that the typical Carlisle character comes around.
Crimson red, not as dark as many Zins. Dark red berry fruit, a touch of smoke and white pepper, but this wine is totally primary right now. I'd say wait another 5 years to see how much this can offer. Beautiful mouthfeel,
