2014 Carlisle "Two Acres" Russian River Valley Red Blend (Previously $50)

SKU #1289336 Vinous

 The 2014 Red Wine Two Acres, Carlisle's Mourvèdre-based blend, is a delicious, fruit-forward wine to drink young, while the flavors remain vibrant. The ripening window was narrow in 2014, so, unusually for this wine, all of the fruit was picked at the same time and co-fermented, which is almost certainly the way these field blends were made when the vineyards were first planted in the early 1900s.

K&L Notes

A 100% Field blend of Mourvèdre, Petite Sirah, Syrah, Carignane, Peloursin, and Alicante Bouschet...Unfinded and unfiltered. A powerful nose of holiday spices, charcuterie, plum, and smoke lead into flavors of Asian 5 spice, plums, and mixed black berries. Velvety and richly textured, this is a luxurious Rhone style blend. Drink from 2018-2030.

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.


- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
Specific Appellation:

Alexander Valley/Russian River

- Among Sonoma County's northernmost appellations, the Alexander Valley AVA acts as a gateway to neighboring Napa to the east and Mendocino to the north. It is a sprawling appellation, with pockets of distinct microclimates and soils, and as such, is home to a variety of wine grapes and styles. Nearly everything grows in the Alexander Valley, though Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay are the most widely planted grapes. The Russian River Valley lies to the south of Alexander Valley, and is marked by much cooler temperatures and frequently heavy fog. The Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grown here are some of the state's finest and most sought-after. Aromatic whites like Gewürztraminer and Riesling can also be successful, and sparkling wine production has a long history in the area.
