Carlisle Winery & Vineyards Palisades Vineyard Petite Sirah 2014

$49.99

Fantastic new Petite Sirah release from Carlisle, one of our favorite small producers! Very limited - only 300 cases produced. 97 Points Robert Parker:  "I’ll just briefly summarize the 2014s. It was the earliest vintage ever for Mike Officer and probably he’ll beat that early harvest record in 2015. In this case, he was finished by October 6, which was a first, and it will be interesting to see if he eclipses that in 2015, which was looking even earlier. The production levels were relatively abundant for Mike Officer and the wines fruit-forward, although softer and less reserved than some of the 2013s. While not quite as opaque in color, they are loaded with fruit, supple and luscious. The only white wine, the Grüner Veltliner Steiner Vineyard, makes an appearance in 2014, and it’s another beauty – it’s crisp and the only wine in bottle. The other wines all stood out and will, no doubt, merit outstanding ratings across the board for their intensity, richness, and full-bodied power. If you already know what Mike Officer does, and the style of his wines, you won’t be disappointed in his 2014s. You may even like them as much as any vintage, given the fact that this year shows a lot of up-front fruit and charm..."

Ink like deep ruby color. Med tannins. Med acidity, long finish. Black fruit, cherry, tobacco. Still has lots of life

Purple color. Anise, black licorice, spice and red fruit on the very forward nose. Full and balanced body. Long finish. Youthful and exuberant but could age for a bit. Delicious now though.

Wow so good. Definitely needs a decant. I decanted for 1hr. Dark purple inky color. Dark fruits and a floral rose petal on the nose. Big black and blue fruits with a touch of spice on the palate.
