    Wine Spectator

    A rare combination for Zinfandel—power with finesse. Distinctive aromas of leafy huckleberry lead to complex, balanced flavors of blackberry, dark chocolate and exotic brown spices. Ripe tannins sneak in on the finish. Drink now through 2016. 325 cases made.

    Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

    The 2008 Zinfandel Carlisle Vineyard (87% Zinfandel and 13% mixed blacks) possesses an extra level of richness as well as the unbridled power of full-throttle Zinfandel with extraordinary elegance and an ethereal quality that is difficult to find elsewhere. Its deep ruby/purple hue is accompanied by abundant aromas of spice, flowers, red, blue, and black fruits.

    Winery Notes

    On April 20th, 2008, about eight hours after it hit a record low of 26 degrees, I ventured out into Carlisle Vineyard. Tender, new shoots ranging from two to six inches were brown and limp, devoid of any life. As a result of the damage, our 81 year-old vineyard yielded a mere half-ton to the acre. But if there was a silver lining, it was that fruit quality at harvest has never been higher. Fermented indigenously. Twenty-one days on the skins. All French oak, 29% new. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
