(includes 4% carignane; 15.4% alcohol and 3.52 pH): Bright purple. Highly perfumed, spice-accented dark berry and incense aromas show impressive clarity and energy. Smooth and seamless on the palate, offering vibrant blackberry preserve and cherry-vanilla flavors and notes of candied flowers and allspice. Finishes with alluring sweetness and excellent length, leaving smoke and floral notes behind. These vines were reportedly planted in 1934.

Carlisle's 2011 Zinfandel Papera Ranch is all about red fruit, lifted aromatics and silky tannins. A highly representative, varietally expressive Zinfandel, the 2011 is utterly convincing. An exotic melange of dried roses, mint, wild flowers and sage rings out on the silky, polished finish. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026.

A solid effort in a tough vintage. Aromas of toasty cherry and spice lead to sleek flavors of tart raspberry, mineral and herb.

Popped and poured and it was great right out of the gate. Wonderful sweet fruit with ripe tannins. Better than the score at WS.
