2010 Carlisle Petite Sirah Palisades Vineyard Napa Valley

Dark, opaque red in color. Dark fruited nose of blackberries and licorice. The fruit is assertive but not overbearing, blackberries, licorice, leather. Firm tannins, nice acidity, fine balance. Bit one-dimensional, but enjoyable. Finishes moderately long, echoing the palate. Very nice, but not complex. Certainly not going downhill, Could drink at this level for another 10 years, but I don't think it will develop much. "B+"
