    September 6, 2021 - Usually this sits behind the single vineyard bottlings in my estimation, but this one really vaulted ahead to join the top rank of Carlisle zins. It’s juicy — almost zingy — but it has enough savory weight in the fruit to retain a character or round richness. Tart raspberry and then sweet round cherry, with the tannic cranberry-raspberry notes finishing it off. Emphasis on the fruit character throughout. Ready to drink now, don’t anticipate improvement, but it doesn’t need it.

    April 29, 2021 - Just grabbed this from among several available Carlisles. Should have checked my previous tasting note. Not in a good place right now - sharp, tart finish - hoping that it might improve with time.
