Might have entered the wrong vintage but drank the 2007 version. Love the Carlisle wines but this left me a bit underwhelmed. Maybe should have sat on it for another 5 years but the complexity and nuances of the fruit weren't there and the finish was unremarkable.
Decanting is a must. Exceedingly tight upon opening, pored into a decanter then consumed for the following 2 hours. Opens up very reticently with copious black fruits and nice spice elements. As much as I like to drink Carlisle PS on the early side, this is a bit too young. Sorry to say it was my only bottle.
