TN: 2006 Carlisle Syrah Sonoma County (USA, California, Sonoma County)

  • 2006 Carlisle Syrah Sonoma County - USA, California, Sonoma County (2/12/2016)
    Original purchase price $18.50! Bought when first offered to the mailing list. Decanted and then followed for 3+ hours. Color very dark. Continued to improve throughout but really began to blossom about two hours out. There’s actually a bit of chocolate on the nose along with dark red fruit. The palate is blackberries and dark tart cherries. Some earthy spice. Long finish. This is a brooding dark flavor profile but with some balancing acidity to keep it a bit bright. Quite delicious but it’s got years left. (91 pts.)

Man, I freaking love Carlisle. $18.50 for all the goodness. Just makes it that much better.

Great note Jay - thanks for posting!

Do these things never die?!

This is syrah! I’ve recently had Hermitage from 1961. Why should this die a premature death? [stirthepothal.gif]
