Was this the Zinfandel or the Grenache?

Found several older Carlisle wines, which was my introduction to the vineyard. Tonight was a 2004 Two acres blend. Oh man is it good.

So great to read this. Two Acres for my taste has always been best with more time sideways. I love Mike's zins and I tend to think they are approachable young (especially the appellation wines) but start strutting their stuff around 5 years post-vintage. But with few exceptions, Two Acres have been better the longer I hold them (Just my experience.)

2016 Carlisle Zinfandel Rossi Ranch - USA, California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Valley (1/26/2020)
Decanted 3 hrs. Huge difference on this one pre and post food. Pre was thin, dilute and just not that interesting, a few slices of a pancetta pizza (mozz, parsley and mint) and this was so much better. Really unique fruit profile, I couldn't quite place it. Certainly not in the dark berry spectrum, red for sure, but it didn't have the spiciness one gets no was it strawberry either. It was darn good, I guess thats all that counts. I should look to getting more Rossi Ranch next go around! (92 points)
GO HAWKS!

2010 Russian River old vines. My last bottle of this in 2013 was fantastic, and this one is as well. Incidentally getting a coravin a few months ago has really made it easier for me to open a wine like this.

Opened a 2017 The Integral tonight paired with a variety pizza we made on the wood fired kettle tonight. It’s not standing out to me tonight. This is my first of four bottles. Should I wait the others out for a while?

Mike has a drinkability chart on his website. I highly recommend using it or even asking him directly.

2017 Sonoma County Syrah. Really tasty and fairly open already. I know Mike advised waiting on these -and patience will certainly be rewarded- but impatience is not exactly punished at this point, particularly after an hour decant. Crazy QPR as always.

Sunday I had the 2011 Carlisle Vineyard Zinfandel (from magnum). Still structured, but balanced by lots of fruit (although not the overt type). I imagine this will stay close to the same for another year or two. One of my friends thought some alcohol was starting to show, but I did not find that.

I drank one within the first few weeks it arrived and had a similar experience, but I still have high hopes for it because Mike has an awesome tough with Syrah. I think the integral needs several years to integrate.

Stood up for a few hours and slow poured into the decanter for 3-4 hours. There was a good amount of fine sediment in the last ounce or so. Aerated back into the bottle and went to dinner. Carlisle corks are nice and malleable and always do their job and then fit nicely back into the bottle with a little effort.

This wine was fantastic. Very fruit forward and complex. Bright raspberry, dark cherry and blueberry flavors. Some cool mint and pepper/spice on the finish. Super smooth throughout, and it will stay at peak for years. Medium-full body. The mouthfeel suggests the 15% alc. but the taste did not.

I wish I had more, but sadly this is the end of all of my Carlisle 2015’s which is the first year I started buying Carlisle. I’ll be keeping an eye out for more to show up on the secondary market.

agree, but still very much enjoyed it as it developed in glass. Red fruit from entry thru finish with plenty of acid backbone (though little in the way of tannins early). By the 3 hour mark, this had evolved so much that it was obvious that this is a number of years away from peaking, but still delicious now

2016 Carlisle Papa Block Syrah- On tap for tonight.

I know it's at the very beginning of the recommended drinking window but I figured why not give one a test drive since I have three left.

Looking forward to it based on both of your glowing recommendations. I opened it around 3:30 to slow ox. I'll post my thoughts tomorrow.

Gentlemen,

I agree with both your comments. IMO, this wine is stupid good and will only get better. I still have some left over, so will see if it continues the lip smack goodness on day 2.

This bottle has me rethinking about opening any other 13s until holiday season.

Received my shipment of 2018's from the recent winter release and I noticed that the Dry Creek Valley Zin is now bottled under screwcap. Is that a first for Carlisle?

No they have used screw caps on a limited basis for red wines in the past and currently use screw caps for most or maybe all of their whites.

Not sure on Dry Creek but the Sonoma County Zin and Syrah were definitely both screwcap last year.

2008 Carlisle Three Birds - USA, California, Sonoma County (3/3/2020)
Unfortunately my last bottle of this beauty. Drank with braised pork shoulder. Mature fruit, spice and earth notes. Drinking at peak and simply delicious. (95 pts.)

2012 Two Acres.

Interesting wine. Plum, beef, beef blood, dry herbs, some spice. Pretty good complexity and balance. I might have liked a little more acid, or some more sharp edges, as it felt a little bit rounded, but that's just a personal preference. Good bottle.

2013 Carlisle Bedrock Vineyard — my last Carlisle. Really liking the little bit of age. Nice acidity, especially for a Zin. Lots of blue fruit and just starting to show a little tertiary flavors. A little heat on the finish. Nice wine.

2010 C-P with dinner. This wine is as good and fresh as when it was released. Loaded with lychee and strikes and interesting palate feel between the heaviness of Gewürtz and a lively refreshing tangyness.
Very likely the last bottle from my stash.

Very likely the last bottle from my stash.
Great note Peter! I love this wine and am also down to my last bottle. Will probably drink in the next couple years but part of me wants to hold it longer to see what happens.

2014 Carlisle RRV Papa's Block Syrah. To go with braised short rib tagliatelle. First taste seems wonderful. And my whole living room and dining room smells wonderful from just the bottle slow-oxing.
