2008 Carlisle Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel

SKU #1056137 92 points Wine Spectator

 Elegant and sleekly structured, yet with a bright backbone of complexity and ripe tannins. Offers lively black raspberry and spicy vanilla aromas that lead to supple flavors of black cherry and licorice. Drink now through 2014.  (4/2010)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 includes 8% carignane and 3% petite sirah) Inky purple. Vibrant red berry and cherry aromas are complicated by licorice and potpourri. Energetic red fruit flavors are firmed by dusty tannins and lifted by bright acidity, which adds definition. Finishes brisk, with a hint of bitter cherry skin and very good persistence. This will be even better with a couple years of bottle age. "Dry Creek is all about cherry," Officer said.  (6/2010)

K&L Notes

Robert Parker writes: "One of California's most compelling success stories is Mike Officer's conversion from full-time software developer to full-time guardian of old vine Zinfandel vineyards and world-class producer of artisinal wines. Carlisle is a hugely successful winery, not only because of outstanding customer service, but because of the simple fact that it delivers great wines at extremely fair prices." (02/2010)
