TN: 2011 Carlisle Papa’s Block Syrah

#1 Post by Barry Sunderland » January 11th, 2019, 8:54 pm

PnP...
Opaque ruby with a purple shine.
Deeply fruity, fresh, balanced, lifted, lovely acidity and a long finish. Nothing overly-done, and quite immensely satisfying.
92 pts.

Good bottle of wine Barry, the Carlisle Syrah’s certainly have no danger of falling off a clif anytime soon! I had this last year and recall it still could go for as long as one would want to keep it around.
GO HAWKS!

As much as I love Syrah I am shocked I don't have a note on the Papa's Block. Will have to seek out a few bottles. The Cellar Tracker average on these wines is all 92 plus which for the price point is amazing.

THAT sums up just about EVERY bottle of Carlisle (dozens!) I’ve ever opened.
