2009 Carlisle Zinfandel Montafi Ranch

A lovely night down here in Charlottesville, so we were out on the porch looking at the Blueridge Mountains With our pizza, we had this Carlisle Zin. Smoky Cherry and raspberry notes on the nose. On the palate perfectly resolved tannins, nice acidity and round, ripe fruit. Red fruits, some dark cherry, raspberry, bit of eucalyptus. Everything in balance and just lovely. Nice gradual finish with dark fruit and spice. Perfect with the pizza from Dr. Ho's down the street. Drinking beautifully right now, no need to wait. Probably good for the next couple of years. Nice stuff. A-

I don't think I've ever had an over-the-hill Carlisle. They last forever or I drink them too quickly.
