Fantastic new Zin release from Carlisle, one of our favorite small producers! 92 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "One of the stars in this lineup, the 2018 Zinfandel (Sonoma County) is a fabulous appellation-level offering from Carlisle. Jammy dark cherry, plum, mocha, licorice, spice and menthol give this boisterous, juicy Zinfandel its racy personality. The 2018 is a blend from a number of sites including Rossi Ranch, Mounts, Teldeschi, Carlisle and Pagani, all top-notch, old-vine sites. This is such a joyous and delicious wine. I loved it." Robert Parker: "...The personality-filled Michael Officer and his beloved Carlisle Winery & Vineyards continues to turn out a gorgeous portfolio of exuberant, lovingly made, stunningly fruity and outright beautiful wines from historic vineyards and iconic grapes that, until the last generation or so, had tended to be forgotten in the early days of California winedom, after the repeal of Prohibition."
