    August 19, 2021 - Summer of 2021 Cornucopia of Wines (Dogwood Grove, Garezers, HHI): Not every Carlisle hits, although most do. This showed crushed berries, spice and had a floral nose, but it also had a dusty element that gave it an overly dry finish which I didn’t like. Also, the finish just wasn't that long, especially compared to some other bottles on the table. But my guests seemed to like it a lot so maybe I was just in a tough rating phase.

    May 8, 2021 - But muted on the nose at first, after a couple hours bramble comes out, very brambly on the palate lot of raspberry, blackberry, black cherry, low acid low to moderate tannin, very nice, fruit forward and drinking nice this is excellent!

    January 23, 2021 - 1st day I did not like it, it had a funny flavor that I could not put a name to. Luckily I kept most of the bottle and drank the 2nd day, what a difference. It was full bodied, voluptuous, with blackberries, spice, and a little pepper. very tasty. I had the same experience with the 2016 vintage.

    December 9, 2020 - It's a bit 'raw' on the pnp......gets a lot better after an hour of air. Initially very grapey. Settles in nicely with a certain dark fruit, and gentle zin spice. There's a nice peppery component but overall not the depth to really make it sing. A nice bottle for sure. A good value for the price.
