2005 Carlisle Bennett Valley Syrah

SKU #1034530 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Deep ruby. Intensely spiced red and dark berry aromas, with strong licorice and black olive accents. Fleshy, pure red and dark berry and cherry flavors are supported by gentle acidity and fine tannins, turning sweeter with air; at once highly concentrated and elegant. Long, silky and spicy on the impressively deep but vivacious finish. 'My version of Cote-Rotie,' Officer says, adding that Torbreck's Dave Powell was his muse while he was making this. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2007)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2005 Syrah Bennett Valley exhibits a distinctive meaty/bacon fat character along with tapenade, blackberries, and cherries. A Cote Rotie-like character is found in this big, rich, fleshy Syrah. Readers should not hesitate to get on Carlisle’s mailing list before the world discovers what compelling beverages are being produced here. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2006)
