Not my favorite Carlisle, I think Galloni might have been right about this one, as the fruit body of the wine doesn't sustain itself through the finish. Raspberry core with dark chocolate and hints of pepper and spice, the whole package was a little light and boozy, more like a Turley that went astray than the polish I usually associate with Carlisle.
Beautiful Zin with a bright acidity keeping it surprisingly fresh and crisp despite it's lofty 15,8% abv. Didn't sence the alc. at all actually. Nice brambly Zin spice and primary fruit flavours combined.
