Dense, structured wine reminiscent of CdP, deep purple color, very flavorful, great bottle

My WOTN. I’ve had some Carlisle’s that came across as jammy fruit bombs and this was such a delight. Fruit forward but very well balanced. An excellent showing tonight.

Delicious. So dusty and tannic. Could go so much longer!

Well made but jammy, overly ripe to my taste. Even for a 2011 that's sat for this long

From vines planted in 1895 and in addition to Zin this includes Alicante Bouschet, Grand Noir & Carignane. Absolutely fantastic, complex and full of vibrancy, such a fine example of American terroir; just stunning.
