2018 Carlisle Zinfandel Carlisle Vineyard Russian River


Current stock: 0

Winery Notes:  Very dark ruby-garnet. Bordering on opaque. Like the color, a very dark fruited nose with aromas of mulberries, elderberry, Christmas tree, and baking spice. Full-bodied but with plenty Piner-Olivet acidity (this vineyard is in the Piner-Olivet area of the Russian River Valley) to keep this wine light on its feet. Similar to my favorite of the older vintages, 2005, but with less alcohol and better balance. Really quite stunning. Enjoy this benchmark, old-vine field blend from 2022 to 2030. (MRO - 01/05/21)
