2005 Carlisle Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel

SKU #1029596 93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Ripe and intense, with harmonious black raspberry and toasty spice flavors of dried plum, black cherry, licorice and cracked pepper. There's richness, with a vibrant finish. (JL) Inner quote mark (10/2007)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The last of Mike Officer’s 2005 Zinfandels to be released include the 2005 Zinfandel Dry Creek, which displays a deep ruby/purple color and a nice raspberry/kirsch/peppery nose, with some steely earthiness in the excellent texture. This wine is an undeniable success in this challenging vintage. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2007)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Dark ruby. Spicy blackberry and raspberry aromas are deepened by vanilla and smoked meat. Quite energetic on the palate, with vibrant red berry flavors, light tannins and a persistent, sweet finish. Strikes a balance of ripeness and freshness. 'The 2005 vintage was so cool that the zins didn't need the acid shot of petite sirah that is often used,' said Officer. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2007)
