Carlisle Winery & Vineyards

Carlisle Winery & Vineyards We are a small Sonoma County winery specializing in the production of old-vine, vineyard designated zinfandels and red Rhone varieties (syrah, grenache, mourvèdre, and petite sirah). While we like our wines to be bold, rich, and intensely flavored, each reflecting a sense of place, its origins in the vineyard, we also strive to create wines of balance, complexity, and perhaps most importantly, pleasure.

  Dry Creek Valley "Gold Mine Ranch" Zinfandel
Medium-dark to dark ruby. A delicious nose of sweet red cherries and plums is highlighted by notes of citrus peel, earth, and cream. Full-bodied but with plenty of structure and tannin to keep everything in balance. Although drinkable now, tannins on the finish suggest this wine will be best from 2008 through 2012.
  Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel
Medium-dark ruby garnet. Fragrant scents of red cherries, iron, and spring flowers. Classic Dry Creek zin! On the palate, absolutely seamless with plenty of delicious lip-smacking cherry fruit. As with many of our wines in 2005, easily my favorite Dry Creek zinfandel to date. Drink mid-2008 through 2012.
