2017 Carlisle Zinfandel Montafi Ranch Russian River Valley

A lovely Carlisle Zin. I know it will get better with a few years, but it will be hard to keep my hands off the rest of my bottles. Nice nose of blackberries and sharp spice. The fruit is lush, but not cloying. Blueberries, raspberries, pepper. Firm tannins, nice acidity and balance. Finishes long with bramble fruits and spice. Give it 2 to 3 years to peak. "A-"
