Impressive that this is 10 years old and drinking so well. Just a hint of oxidative flavors but not the least bit flabby and the core of red and dark fruits suprisingly integrated and delicious. These Carlisle zins definitely improve with age and are a breed apart--and this an entry level bottle at $23.
Might be time to drink up. A lot of alcohol on the nose at first. As the wine opened up, the aromas gave way to a bit of cedar and cigar. The flavor of dark fruit and plums finished with a bit of an earthy funk.
