Carlisle Piner-Olivet Ranches Zinfandel 2021
|California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley
The 2021 Zinfandel Piner-Olivet is another fabulous wine in this range. It brings together so many of the elements that make the Carlisle wines so compelling. Dense and succulent, the 2021 races across the palate, showing notable textural depth and persistence. All the elements are so well balanced. The Piner-Olivet is a blend of Carlisle, Papera, Mancini and Pagani, essentially three grand crus from the Russian River Valley and a fourth from Sonoma Valley! That's a pretty appealing combination in my book. Moreover, this wine is exceptionally well- priced.
Fresh and exuberant, with vibrant black raspberry, cracked pepper and brown baking spices that gather structure and richness toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2031. 672 cases made.
