2010 Carlisle Zinfandel Monte Rosso Vineyard

A dark berry nose. Bright, fresh fruit, blackberries, cherries, spice. Firm tannins, great acidity, fabulous balance. Finishes long with blackberries and spice notes. Beautiful wine. Should hold at this level for at least 5 years. It may even improve some. 15.8% ABV but no heat at all. A classic Carlisle Zin. "A"
