Carlisle Carlisle Vineyard 2014 Zinfandel

A classic “Carlisle nose” of mint tea, iron, and crushed dark berries, including mulberry which has always been a hallmark of this vineyard. The palate is rich, expansive and savory. The fresh berry notes mirror those on the nose, bringing black raspberry, boysenberry and Mirabelle plum to the party. The finish is accented with Asian spices and a cocoa powder texture that is ultimately refreshed by the natural acidity of the wine. Another stunner from this fine old lady. Drink 2019 – 2030.
