I had a weird experience of this wine. The first night I opened it I found it overly acidic and tannic with an odd medicinal edge to the fruit. It may have been the food it was served with or my taste buds were screwy. In any case, the next night it was the usual reassuring Carlisle Zin, balanced, complex, loaded with dark cherry, boysenberry, and plum fruit with a hint of underbrush, lavender, and spiciness. Rich but not overpowering the mouth. - HK 2020-01-04
