Community Tasting Note

  • tomherer Likes this wine: 93 points

    July 15, 2017 - Agree completely with Tomlee, per usual. This is nothing like Carlisle's version from the same vintage (haven't tried WS's), but the level of quality is about the same. A little more restrained, lean, and high-toned than the Carlisle. Beautifully fragrant and complex. Black cherry, raspberry, tar, earth, spiced tea, and some citrus on the finish. The fresh, lively profile and chalky tannins suggest many great years ahead.

    7/18/17, 11:14 AM - Hard to say, honestly -- last time I had the Carlisle, it was the differences that stood out more than the similarities. More bass notes and creaminess. It was also pretty unruly, so was going to wait a couple years to try again. Sorry :). That said, I am trying to line up a '14 horizontal between the two on the Carlisle Vineyard as well as the Limerick Lane vyd (maybe throw Biale in too if one can be found). Will be sure to post TNs when it happens!
