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.
