A few fun 4th Friday wines from tonight.
My first experience with this zin from Carlisle. When compared to the Linne Calado it shared the tabled with, this was slightly sweeter compared to tart/underripe. 100% Zin. Notes of squeezed boysenberries, candied black cherries, fig, raspberry chocolates jump from the glass. On the palate...wow! So tart! Cran-raspberries, currant, red plum, red sweet-tarts and black cherry preserves coat the mouth in a fairly dense profile. — 22 days ago
I had great experience with their estate Merlot, and this reserve cab is quite impressive as well.
The initially shy nose slowly reveals black and blue berries, cedar, pencil lead, incense, cocoa, and hint of crushed rocks. The slightly ripe palate is round yet delicate, showing its classy with well woven streaking acidity and mellow tannins.
100% Cab from two vineyards from HHH, raised in 100% French oak barrel (45% new) for 20 months. — 9 days ago
Always solid, never disappoints.
17’ shows a cedar nose,
And the first hint of blackberry, tarragon, eucalyptus. The second hint, which is eucalyptus, comes in strong and stays for quite awhile, mingled with a bit of coffee and Woody tannins.
Really needs at least 5 years, especially with these last few hot years in the valley.. — 8 days ago
Enjoyable Zinfandel, not too hard on the palate and easy as you eat red meat and vegetables. Good well rounded wine to share! — 24 days ago
