93Jeb Dunnuck

...offers tons of smoked dark fruits, licorice, olive, and plenty of meatiness to go with a ripe, textured, sexy style on the palate.

92Wine Spectator

Refines and tames a gutsy personality, bringing polish to expressive blackberry, wild game and smoked pepper flavors that build toward broad-shouldered tannins.

90The Wine Advocate

...notions of cured meats, desiccated lilac, black berries, pepper, woodsmoke and blue fruits with touches of garrigue and dried citrus peel. Medium-bodied, it's earthy and sanguine in the mouth with a firm, chewy frame and good freshness, finishing pleasantly rustic.

90-92Vinous / IWC

...creamy, supple and inviting. Soft contours and silky tannins add to the wine racy personality and overall appeal... This is another delicious wine from Carlisle.


United States, California, Sonoma, Russian River Valley

Russian River Valley AVA is named for the river that meanders from Mendocino County in the north until it finally runs into the Pacific Ocean north of San Francisco. The AVA is cool thanks to its proximity to the northern California coast and the river, and grape growers must learn to deal with regular fog. Nevertheless in recent decades the AVA has become one of the best in the state, meaning that its wines often earn excellent reviews and have considerable cachet. The AVA status was awarded in 1983 and today the appellation has 15,000 vineyard acres. Chardonnay is the most widely planted grape though Pinot Noir has also been very successful in recent decades. Russian River Valley Pinot Noir are known for being rich, lush and filled with concentrated fruit and berry flavors. Russian River Pinot Noirs are today considered some of the best domestic Pinot Noirs.
