Community Tasting Note

  • Hammar Likes this wine: 93 points

    March 1, 2018 - As wine drinkers, quantifying a wine into a rating includes so much more than the wine itself. Where were you? Who were you with? Sometimes it's a meal at a restaurant, sometimes it's sitting on a couch in sweatpants watching TV. The trick is to sterilize the environment and focus on only the wine, however that is much easier said that done as wine drinking itself is an experience and affects the environment as much as the environment affects the wine.

    This wine was enjoyed on the couch in sweatpants watching Netflix while my three small children slept quietly. It had an inviting nose of black fruit, which the subsequent tasting reinforced. A good amount of heat initially that dissipated with each sip that lead into a nicely balanced, long lasting finish.

    I thoroughly enjoyed every sip of this wine. It has 5 good years left in it, so drink or hold.

    3/1/18, 3:27 PM - loved this TN :). great storytelling, and struck a chord w/me instantly. I'm home sick, working on my couch in pajama bottoms, and have a bottle of Carlisle keeping me company that is absoLUTEly affecting the environment more than the environment is affecting it. Literally spilling happiness into the room. Anyway, thanks again for the TN, and hope you contribute more of them in this format soon!
