Opaque ruby. An exotically perfumed nose evokes fresh red and dark berries, cola and peppery spices, with subtle earth and lavender nuances adding complexity. Sappy, sharply focused raspberry and bitter cherry flavors are enlivened by a tangy note of blood orange and show excellent clarity. Appealingly bright and lively, finishing with silky tannins and lingering florality.

Carlisle’s 2011 Zinfandel Du Pratt Vineyard, from a site planted in 1920, is endowed with striking inner perfume. Layers of blue and black fruit, cloves, mint, violets and graphite come alive in the glass. Plush, deep and sensual, the Du Pratt is showing beautifully today. Layers of dark, meaty fruit flow through to the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2016–2031.

A distinctive Zin that offers a real sense of place. Aromas of spice and brambly huckleberry lead to zesty, well-focused currant, toasty cinnamon and anise flavors. Tannins are big but ripe. Needs time to bloom. Best from 2015 through 2022.
