    October 6, 2021 - Classic Carlisle Papera. Vibrant raspberry, pomegranate, white pepper with a touch of mineral tinged orange oil and eucalyptus on the finish. All in balance. Layered. Excellent wine. Drink now.

    October 6, 2021 - The 2017 Carlisle "Papera Ranch" Russian River Valley Zinfandel was staring at me today as if it knew I blew away my macros this weekend in a gluten overload. This wine is so powerfully sweet - if you paired it with a snickers bar you might have diabetes the next morning. The wine well integrated though - not cloying - just present, deep, concentrated and layered. Black cherries, plums, boysenberry and cinnamon on the palate. Almost chewy. Smooth and voluptuous. It might be just the carbs talking but I’d really like to pour this over some vanilla ice cream. -DD95

    September 29, 2021 - Had to try one after a good friend posted he had one on instagram… Cherry, strawberry, pomegranate, violets, white pepper, great balance with sweet fine grain tannins. Very good right now.

    September 14, 2021 - A nose of dark fruits and spices, dark purple in color. A full bodied red, with black cherry, smokey pepper and spice on long finish, still young, decant. www.winelx.com

    September 6, 2021 - Berry cobbler. Pie crust. Sweet, ripe fruit, but not syrupy or cloying. Fantastic. Wow. Plum, currant, beautiful ripe, red fruit.
