    July 26, 2021 - PnP and drank before and with dinner. No detailed notes. Great all the way thru, and still evolving. Wish I had another to enjoy more thoughtfully.

    May 17, 2021 - This is the home juice that Carlisle's reputation was built on... and it is lovely!

    May 7, 2021 - Still purple to garnet, fully extracted. The nose have dusty minerality, dark fruit, spice notes. The tannins had softened and balanced the acidity; plenty of fruit left. The alcohol is 15.4 which surprised me as there no sense of hotness. In a great place

    November 6, 2020 - Major disappointment. Well past the drinking window. Mildly harsh tannins, mild acidity, but next to no fruit.
