2016 Carlisle "Sierra Mar" Santa Lucia Highlands Syrah

SKU #1360673 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep garnet-purple, the 2016 Syrah Sierra Mar Vineyard (100% Syrah) gives up fragrant black pepper, crushed rocks, Provence herbs and black olive notes with a core of baked black cherries, preserved plums and blackberries plus a waft of charcuterie. Full-bodied, the palate packs a wallop but also possesses great poise, featuring very ripe, rounded tannins and beautiful freshness, finishing long and savory. 214 cases produced. From humble beginnings in 1998, Carlisle continues to go from strength to strength, growing from a solid philosophy of sourcing mainly Zinfandel and Rhône varieties from ancient vineyards in Sonoma and further afield. So, most of the vines used by Mike and Kendall Officer were planted from 1888 to 1934. From 2013, they have their own winery in which to create their magic--the old Robert Mueller winery in Russian River Valley. (LPB) 94+ points. Inner quote mark (6/2018)

91-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Syrah Sierra Mar Vineyard is a deep, powerful and intense wine that shows the influence of the warmer climate found in this southernmost part of the AVA coupled with the richness conferred by Alban clones. Plush and dense, with tons of layers, the 2016 is built on a core of concentrated fruit. Black cherry, chocolate, leather and spice fill out the wine's ample, large-scaled frame. The 25% whole clusters are not especially noticeable. (AG) Inner quote mark (4/2018)
