2011 Carlisle "Two Acres" Russian River Valley Red Blend

SKU #1152287 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark (made only from old vines mourvedre and syrah this vintage, as all of the other varieties planted in this vineyard either failed to ripen or rotted; 12.5% alcohol): Bright ruby. Spicy red berries and cherry on the nose, with lively mineral and floral notes adding vivacity. Lithe and precise on the palate, offering smoke-accented black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that take on weight with air. Finishes brisk and clean, with late-arriving tannins and an echo of peppery spices. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2013)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Carlisle's 2011 Red Wine Two Acres graces the palate with exquisite freshness and silkiness. This is a fairly restrained, bright vintage for the Two Acres, with plenty of expressive, high-toned floral notes and lifted red-toned fruit. The wine's mid-weight structure argues for near and medium-term drinking. In 2011, the Two Acres is all about balance and harmony. The Two Acres is typically a blend of several grapes, but in 2011 the difficult weather conditions claimed the Carignane, Alicante, Petite Sirah and Peloursin, so the blend is predominantly Mourvèdre with just a dollop (2%) of Syrah. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2014)
