Carlisle conitnues to pump out some of the best Zinfandels. Period. That they cost under $50 is even better. Purple in color. The nose is great with black raspberries, slight bramble, char and black cherries. On the palate, the texture is wonderful; lush yet precise. Lots of black rasberry and boysenberry fruit. Depth. Needs spicy or big foods. Long finish. Just a delicious wine.
