2006 Carlisle Syrah Sonoma County
Sonoma County, California
WB Rating: 89

Alcohol by volume: 15.1%
Price at time of purchase: $19.99 (Bottle Barn, Santa Rosa CA)
Type: Syrah
Principal varietal(s): Syrah

Corpulent Syrah overflowing with ripe blueberry and black cherry fruit, cassis liqueur, smoky oak, roasted meat, and an undercurrent of Dr. Pepper spiciness. At this age, the tannins have melted away and the wine is silky smooth and extremely easy going down. Balanced in the mouth despite the high alcohol. Amazingly good "entry-level" Syrah from Carlisle. - HK 2013-02-20
