RATINGS

92Robert M. Parker Jr.

...a stunning perfume of white chocolate, black fruits, earth, and licorice. This full-bodied 2001 has added layers to its mid-palate, and finishes with substantial intensity as well as well-integrated acidity and tannin.

92Wine Spectator

Shows off an enticing bouquet of ripe fruit and bay leaf scents, with rich, concentrated blackberry, plum, wild berry and beefy pepper flavors that hold true through the finish.

PRODUCER

Carlisle

Carlisle Winery is owned by Mike Officer, a former software developer and home winemaker, and his wife Kendall. Based on their success making up to 300 cases of mostly Zinfandels at home, they launched a commercial winery in 1998 in Sonoma County. Jay Maddox, an old friend of the Officers and graduate of the U.C. Davis winemaking program, was brought on as the winemaker. Today the winery is known for its limited production Zinfandels, Syrahs and Petite Sirahs. Grapes are sourced from vineyards in Sonoma County, and more recently, Paso Robles on the Central Coast of California. About 5,000 cases are produced annually. Robert M. Parker Jr. calls Carlisle’s wines “stunningly rich, opulent, intensely flavorful. Loaded with soul and personality…”

TYPE

Red Wine, Syrah (Shiraz)

This grape is grown in milder climates and produces a medium-to full-bodied wine. It is also known as Shiraz, but should not be confused with Petit Sirah, which was developed by crossing Syrah with Peloursin.
