This delicious offering from a 1926 mixed-varietal vineyard shows complex savory notes on top of ripe dark cherry and blueberry fruit flavors. Like many Carlisle Zins, the savory component is reminiscent of the southern Rhone. Full, rich in the mouth without being heavy, the alcohol hidden in the flavors. Still youthful in feel with real grip in the mouthfeel and finish. - HK 2021-09-23
