2012 Carlisle Zinfandel Sonoma County
7/31/2014 - ravbik Does not like this wine:
85 points
austere, light-weighted acidic herbal zinfandel. I was expecting much more from Mr. Officer. This disappointed in quality compared to previous vintages. Maybe opened too soon.

2011 Carlisle Syrah Papa's Block Russian River Valley
Too early. Decanted for about an hour. Only after about 2 hours did I get much on the nose...dark fruit and some floral components. solid tannins and acidity. more dark fruit on the palate with some of the floral component along with some earthiness.
