2004 Carlisle "Carlo's Ranch" Russian River Valley Zinfandel

SKU #1067868 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2004 Zinfandel Carlo’s Ranch (the old DeLoach Papera Vineyard) offers a deep ruby/purple color as well as an elegant nose of sandalwood and briery, berry fruit. Made from cool climate fruit, there is a Pinot Noir-like approach in this offering. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2006)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Saturated ruby-red. Blackberry, spices, orange zest and black licorice on the perfumed, vibrant nose. Creamy and superripe, with an exotic, liqueur-like quality. But this superconcentrated and enticing wine benefits from terrific acidity that gives a sappy quality to its dense flavors. This is nearly 100% zinfandel, a rarity for a vineyard this old. The crop level here was just 1.2 tons per acre, according to Officer. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2006)

Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark *One Star* They like their wines to be ripe and concentrated at Carlisle, and that goal has been achieved consistently, including in this latest batch of offerings. Both this bottling and its mate directly below will be well liked by the ripe-is-better crowd, and both display a fair dollop of underlying fruit. This one is perhaps a little deeper overall and has a touch more chocolate in its makeup. We would use it with cheeses and nuts. Inner quote mark (1/2007)
