'11 Dupratt Zin. Quite tasty!! Didn't have a chance to sit with it, so no notes.

Every time I pull one of his wines I ask myself why I dropped off the list. [scratch.gif]

2009 Carlisle Zinfandel Carlisle Vineyard (CVZ) – Some alcohol starting to peek through, but otherwise balanced. While CVZ generally ages longer than other vineyards (and has aged better than the Montafi and Papera in this vintage), I think it's seen its peak and is a gentle decline. Mike has its drinking window ending this year, and I think he has nailed it. I also think that some earlier vintages of CVZ (2007, 2005 and maybe even 2003) may still be drinking as well at this point although I haven't tasted them in the last year and a half. None of this prevented me from enjoying it last night after a rough day at work.

Thanks for the note David. I have drank all but one of my bottles and had a really enjoyable bottle earlier this year. I have been trying to hold at least 1 bottle of the single vineyard Zins to see how they do at age 10 and more. So far I have been pleased with the results.

My pleasure, and it was a pleasure! I think the aging is vintage dependent and, of course, depends on one's tastes. When we did six CVZ vintages a year and a half ago, the 2003 was still going strong (although Mike had a bottle not too long before our dinner that was over the hill). 2009 is not the best vintage for long term aging in my opinion. Your plan, however, is great.

2010 Sonoma County Syrah. The nose on this is terrific. I will report back later with overall impression.

Decanted and drank over 3 hours. Some sediment was filtered out. This still has 4 years of life in it, but I’d recommend drinking before 2021. Brilliant cool dark fruit on initial pour. Gained a slight mint quality after 20 minutes. Earthiness and woodsy character grew from there. At about 90 minutes the woodsy character really came out and was described as wet ground tree stump. I got that. I thought the alcohol showed periodically on the nose and palate at 60 minutes+. Decant this and drink within 90 minutes. A bit of a rollercoaster but it was a solid wine and easily worth the $25.

2014 Carlisle Zinfandel Carlisle Vineyard

In one word, delicious. Needs a good 30-40 minutes to open up though.

Wines of Note
"Carlisle 2016 'Pagani Ranch' Zinfandel Sonoma Valley
by David D.
May 15, 2018


"...Bright, ruby red in color with a pale pink rim. Nose of fresh baked bread, orange peel, raspberry, lavender and a faint note of cocoa. Very engaging. The flavors have amazing depth and richness; ripe blackberry, dark cherry, leather, black tea and some cracked pepper. Silky, integrated tannins. Long, long finish with hints of baking spices, oak and blueberry."

2015 Carlisle Grenache Rossi Ranch. Extremely enjoyable wine even young. Went really well with mushroom risotto and prosciutto wrapped chicken. As far as notes, there isn’t much I can add to Mr. Officer’s notes.
Medium garnet-ruby. Holy smokes! An incredibly perfumed, incense-like nose of strawberry, kirsch, and sandalwood. Essence of Grenache! Supple on entry, flavors of red currant, strawberry and kirsch abound. The wine finishes long with plenty of spice and a gentle tannic grip. Surprisingly (or perhaps not), almost Pinot Noir-like. We find this wine delicious now but suspect it will drink well for the next decade. (MRO – 07/18/17)

Had the 2013 Grenache this past Saturday, was some seriously wonderful Grenache goodness! Although still quite youthful, it was definitely in a very nice spot and for my palate it was leagues better than most any modern CdP in the same price bracket (if not 2-3x as much). Has to rank up there as one of the best examples of Grenache I've ever had from the US. Hopefully Mike keeps making it because I'm a super fan!

Should also note we had a 2015 Sonoma County Zin that same evening, was super yummy and easygoing.

2007 Carlisle Syrah Russian River Valley - USA, California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley (12/24/2018)
This is actually my first bottle of this Syrah and it was wonderful. PnP and drank with Meatballs in Thai sauce. This wine had concentrated dark fruit flavors and a nice spiciness. Age has added an elegance and seamless flavor integration. Love this and happy to have one more. Drink or hold. (94 pts.)

Brief impressions on 3 Carlisles I've had over the last few days:

2011 Papa's Block Syrah - Still very youthful, you can really sense the cool weather vintage given the acidic structure. Drinking well now but many quality years ahead.

2016 Alicante Bouschet Pagani - somehow I was lucky enough to get 6 of these, my dad really wanted to try it so we gave it a go as a pop and pour. Tight, potential written all over it, but best to wait.

2016 Piner Olivet Ranches Zin - Glorious and very open, absolutely enjoy this anytime. Superb Zin.
GO HAWKS!

I’ve shared Papera’s with my family before, but the 2016 had them calling Carlisle to order it the next day!

Carlisle Vineyard Zin, 2011. Needs 3-4 hours of air and then it shines. Will open my last one in 3-5 years.

2009 Two Acres. I didn't like it when I tasted it three years ago, but it has really blossomed. Full, balanced, ready to drink, but may improve in the next couple of years.

A few months ago we had a mini vertical of Two Acres... a '99 from Magnum, a '09 and an '11. The '99 stole the show and supported my preference for aging Two Acres.

‘08 TA was drinking beautifully two days ago. This is the first bottle I’ve opened. ‘07 is also doing well but is quite different in style, somewhat leaner.

2014 Old Vines.

Snagged this because it felt like a Carlisle kinda night.....and it has a screwcap which was ideal since we were heading up north for the night to take the kids sledding ;)

Delicious as always. Dark red fruits, some pepper, and way more complexity than a bottle at this price point should have. No detailed notes, but we enjoyed it .....even out of plastic hotel cups in the hot tub. Should drink well and continue to improve over the next 3 to 5 years.

Continuing my tour of the 2016’s, I selected the Carlisle Vineyard tonight. I don’t think I’ve ever had a zin with blood orange as the most prominent flavor, but this one has it...Mr. Officer nailed the flavor profile again. Along with cherry, cranberry and medium body, this has bright acidity and tannins to balance it. A minty sensation with slight alcohol is on the backend of this. A nice and complex wine.

2012 Carlisle Zinfandel Sodini Vineyard - USA, California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley (1/4/2019)
I believe that this is my first bottle from this vineyard. PnP and drank with pizza. I really like it's richness and concentration. I will be looking forward to my remaining two bottles. Drink or hold. (92 pts.)

Anyone have any guesses for Thursday? I know last year we got Papa's Block, Dry Creek Zin, and the new Piner-Olivet (which was delicious) but what else can we expect? Will we see the return of the Sonoma Valley Zin and Syrah this year? When will the first vintage of the Cabernet be released?

You know, when drinking Carlisle semi-frequently it kinda makes you forget about how talented of a winemaker Mike Officer truly is. Tonight, I was reminded:

2013 Carlisle Zinfandel Pagani Ranch Sonoma Valley - USA, California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Valley (1/14/2019)
Popped and poured; deep, brilliant purple/ruby. Billowing aromas immediately off the pop...a lifted, almost floral perfume of blackberry, boysenberry, black pepper, autumnal vegetation, eucalyptus, chocolate mint, red clay & graham cracker. Evolves continually with air. Medium-plus body, racy acidity. On the palate, more red-fruited (cherries, cranberries, blood orange) in character plus notes of spice and an intriguing green/menthol quality. Rounded, somewhat chewy tannins accentuate the flavors on an endless close.
The herbaceous earthiness of this wine is just special...and yeah, some touches of VA and heat but who cares?? Absolutely profound.

...

I'm a huge Pagani fan, love Ridge's version and Bedrock's as well; that said, Carlisle's Pagani is usually my favorite and Mike just seems to have a special way with the fruit. Even then and regardless of personal bias, Mike's 2013 Pagani is at a whole 'nother level...to date, my WOTY.

Man, that Pagani just floored me! Grabbed it on a whim last week at my offsite because I've got 3 bottles...much like Bedrock, might be time to start delving more seriously into Carlisle 2013s!

Man, that Pagani just floored me! Grabbed it on a whim last week at my offsite because I've got 3 bottles...much like Bedrock, might be time to start delving more seriously into Carlisle 2013s!
Sounds like I should pop one of these. Had a 2000 Malartic-Lagraviere on deck for tonight, but this might be a better match for lasagne. [cheers.gif]

Got in trouble last week as the wife asked for a Carlisle and I had to tell her we didn't have any (at home). Grabbed a 2016 Carlisle Carlisle and it was delicious. About 15 minutes to open up and it was gone in no time flat.

Thanks for the tasting note, William!!!


I have heard only good things about the 2016 vintage for most of California wines. They certainly appear to be accessible (at least the Carlisle and Bedrock wines).
