2018 Carlisle Zinfandel DuPratt Vineyard
Winery Notes: Brilliant medium ruby-red but don’t let the lighter color fool you. This wine is packin’! Soaring aromas of macerated cherries and red currants are highlighted by a slight resinous smell that brings to mind the surrounding forest of redwood, fir, buckeye, and bay laurel. Based on the nose alone, one would expect a bruiser on the palate. But not so! Instead, a beautiful, almost lithe wine with gorgeous mouthfeel and intense autumnal red fruit flavors. No question about it, my favorite DuPratt to date. Drink from release through 2027.
