TN: 2018 Carlisle Zinfandel Mancini Ranch

  • 2018 Carlisle Zinfandel Mancini Ranch - USA, California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley (3/28/2022)
    Wonderfully floral nose, purple fruited, juicy and expansive. I know Carlisle wines age well but I simply love how fresh Mike’s Zins show in their youth. I also like seeing the progress made in rehabilitating this vineyard which 10 years ago was scraggly and unkept with lots of tractor blight. Holes have been filled with new vines and the farming has rejuvenated this once great site that is now enjoying it’s rebirth. It really shows in the wines.

Thanks for the tasting note Brian!!

The “Mancini Vyd” has truly blossomed under Max Reichwage & Co. I think this is one of Mr Officer’s best single-vineyard bottlings as of late.

Are 2018 Zins the Bomb? Seems every one I’ve opened have been fantastic.
