Inky dark purple. Muted aroma but lots of ripe blueberry fruit. Very smooth texture, supple tannins, lower acidity. Rich and supple with almost port-like flavors. No oxidation after 24 hours. Really outstanding stuff. Many years ahead but it might be too good to wait on. Too bad there's so little of it.
Money. Opened for a couple colleagues and drank out of crappy stems and the wine showed excellent. Pure, dark berry, about as dark as wine can get, a cobbler-like feel with a tarry finish. This was open and finished within 45 mins and what a lovely. As much as I enjoy, am thrilled by pinot noir with red fruit and acidity, I still love and pursue wines like this PS and what Mike does with the grape.
Big dark PS, with great black fruit and chewy tannins, needs some time in the decanter. I think it actually opened up alittle more the following day, a couple yrs of cellaring would do this bottle justice but drinking pretty well now.
This was really good, better than expected. Well balanced, not overly toasted oaked like other Carlisles can be. Great fruit and spice balance. Drinking well at this early age but should last 5-7 years. Great wine, too bad Mike only made 40 cases of this gem.
