Carlisle 2013 Zinfandel Montafi Ranch, Russian Rover Valley, Sonoma County, CA
Wine Advocate rating: (92-94)..."The 2013 Zinfandel Montafi Ranch, a blend of 89% Zinfandel and 11% mixed blacks, is a powerful wine with 15.8% alcohol. One of the largest 2013 cuvées (700 cases), it was aged in 20% new French oak. Copious aromas of blackberry and blackcurrant fruit emerge from this big, boldly flavored, savory, full-bodied, classic, peppery, spicy, mouthfilling Zinfandel. This beauty should develop into one of the beauties in the 2013 portfolio. Drink 2015-2024."
