2007 Carlisle Carignane Papera Ranch Russian River Valley

Bright, translucent cherry red in color. Not much on the nose, faint cherry aroma. Soft on the palate, cherry, some black cherry accents. Deepens with air. Fine tannins, decent acidity, good balance. Nice minerality. Finishes short and undistinguished. Perfectly nice, not great. Better than my last bottle a year ago, but I don't think it's going to get better with more aging. I'd drink over the next 2 years. "B+"
