    July 4, 2019 - Drank with grilled burgers, flap meat steak, and grilled veggies for the 4th celebration. I found this to be drinking wonderfully - rich and deep with silky texture. New world Syrah flavors with dark berry and plum with a little briny olive character. Consistent with the generous aromas on the nose. Not super complex and perhaps a touch more oak influence than I prefer, but I (and the group) really enjoyed this.

    February 23, 2019 - Deep ruby red in appearance. Layered nose with black olives, crushed rocks, purple flowers, black fruits and white pepper. Medium tannins (6/10) and medium to medium plus bodied. Blackberries on the attack of the palate with herbs and spices. Followed up black pepper, violets, minerality and olives. Long finish. Drink till 2023.

    July 23, 2018 - Nice blackberry fruit with touches of cracked pepper and tobacco. Finish is all mocha. Still has plenty of life left...drink now - 2027.

    March 24, 2018 - Carlisle never disappoints. This weighty Syrah brought forth its wonderful dark fruit and lush undertones of a slightly drier nature. Spice was nice but not overt. Long finish making for a wonderful experience.
