+1 I buy and drink more Carlisle wine than any other producer, and have been doing so for about 15 years. While I enjoy many other california wines, and have been buying and drinking a lot more wine from italy the last few years, Carlisle is still my day in, day out go-to, particularly Mike's zins.

Opened a 2012 Carlisle vineyard zin last night - have been working through my '12's but this was my first from this vineyard, which from my own experience is usually better with age. Glad I waited - this wine is drinking beautifully.

2011 Saitone is drinking great.
2011 Bedrock and 2011 Martinelli Rd are possibly ready but might be better in a year or two. I’m on the fence about these two.
2012 Monte Rosso and Papera are stunning, don’t hesitate to try these wines as they are in a perfect place.

In other lessons: we recently had our annual dinner. A vertical of Papas and Palisades convinced me that I’m not a pet friendly person anymore but much to my surprise I loved the every single Papas we drank.
I can also say that the next offering will include two wines that are not to be missed, Papera and The Integral. Both great wines.

Thanks Peter! Was thinking about opening the 12 Monte Rosso soon for a tasting, and your note sealed the deal.

Let’s not get technical, but it’s actually the anti-derivative. Cofermentation of almost equal parts Syrah and Mourvèdre like Drew said.

2014 Grüner Veltliner was a delight this past weekend under screwcap. Flint, yeast, and pot de crème but not sweet at all. Delicious and minerals galore, hard to imagine one who would dislike this wine.

In my limited experience this has become the finest reasonably priced GV. Picked up several 2011s last year that are drinking perfectly now.
2011 was a great year for all three Carlisle whites.

Wife unscrewed 2014 Sonoma Co Zin earlier this week and somehow left a glass for me last night with Yankee game.

How Mike does this for ~ $20 is astonishing.

Agreed buddy. One of the few $20 wines that I'm always worried about opening too early.

And that's a very, very good thing.

2016 Gruner. Wow was that delicious. Orchard fruits and a delicate floral aroma were predominant. Dont think we ever scarfed down a whole bottle that quickly.

2016 C-P fresh, vibrant, intensely aromatic with lychee, citrus blossoms, and a hint of jasmine.

Often I think that I have too much Carlisle and need to cut back, but each bottle I open draws me back. Amazing quality and complexity for so little money.

My collection of Carlisle only goes back a scan 2 vintages so we popped a 15 Montafi last night. Beautifl garnet, great balance of acidity to the bright red fruits. I also get an meaty, earthy component that is herbal and bitter, like a dry anise or meaty black olive. is that the eucalyptus coming through?

Jon, I generally notice the eucalyptus on the nose. The anise on the aftertaste, which I like, is probably intense because the wine is young and this might integrate if you keep some for day two.
That anise or licorice aftertaste happens with a lot of red wines (esp from OV CA blends) that are not just about fruit.

2011 Three Birds- very enjoyable, well balanced, no heat or jam. Opened up over 20 minutes. For my taste this is at peak but I will keep my last bottles for a few more years to see.

2004 Alliacante Bouchette. Shows very slight age on the nose and none on the palate. Inky black color. Fill bodied and up front fruit with a long finish. Well balanced on the fisnish.

I can't identify the exact fruits flavors but this is one of the best tasting aged Carlisles I've ever tasted.

Man, that's an awesome note Bob, and congrats on having the willpower to hold the wine that long. I had good luck with an Angelo Papagni Alicante from the 70's not long ago bought at auction. Grape ages well!!

2010 Monte Rosso last night with a couple of hours of air. Very good win and certainly mature - big Zin fruit and florals. It's not going to fall off a cliff, but I wouldn't push aging too much farther if you are sitting on a few of these. My .02

Opened the 2016 Zinfandel Montafi Ranch tonight.

Pop n' pour, drank first two glasses over two hours. Ripe raspberry and sour cherry, with hints of bramble and soil. Medium plus body, fresh acidity and smooth though slightly astringent tannins. With the hype around this bottling, I was surprised to find it less complex than the 2016 Carlisle Zinfandel Pinet Olivet Ranches, which I adored. Still, a very tasty zinfandel with lots of upside potential. I'll wait to open my next bottle in 5 years.

I am a fan of underdogs: Ali Bou, Carignan, even (once upon a time) Mourvèdre. Shoot - Zin could easily qualify!

Maybe it's because one's expectations are either low going into a tasting experience, or one has zero preconceived "high mark" to hold the wine against. It can provide a wine lover a tremendous "WOW moment" when a hidden gem is found.

In truth, any grape that is grown under the proper conditions, vinified by a winemaker who is aiming for a quality product, and provided a little cooperation from Mother Earth, can yield a bottle of wine that will expand the horizons of a wine lover.


How many Carignan or Alicante Bouschet haters are lined up in the hallway for the next appearance of a bottle of "Green Hungarian"? :P

2008 Two Acres, my last bottle. It took half an hour to open up, but "plush" is the word I use for the first night, balanced, a beautiful wine. Tonight, night two, it's lost the fruitiness, but is still drinking very well. I imagine this will hold a while, but see no reason to defer its pleasure.

Great minds and all...I also opened my first bottle of ‘08 and plush, balanced, integrated and beautiful it is. I have found 8-10 years is the sweet spot for this wine. Friggin’ delicious!!

2014 Pagani

This was a bit too over-ripe tasting, at least for my palate...have one more, will wait a few years before opening.

I needed a cup for dinner prep and tasted a tiny sample...

Ho-ly shit!

Nice man! Pumped this is drinking well, as I just finished my last 12! Sounds like I'll have to pop one soon.
