"The 2014 Zinfandel Papera Ranch is exuberant, rich and extroverted to the core. Sweet dark cherry, plum, mint, tobacco, cedar, menthol and spices flesh out in a hugely appealing wine endowed with real depth and intensity. The finish is perhaps a bit chunky, but there is so much to like that I can look past that slightly rustic part of the wine's personality. This historic Russian River site was planted in 1934.

Sweet dark cherry, plum, mint, tobacco, cedar, menthol and spices flesh out in a hugely appealing wine endowed with real depth and intensity. The finish is perhaps a bit chunky, but there is so much to like that I can look past that slightly rustic part of the wine's personality. This historic Russian River site was planted in 1934. The blend of 96% Zinfandel and 4% Carignane is unusually high for mixed blacks vineyards planted during this period."~Antonio Galloni

Carlisle Winery"Carlisle Winery & Vineyards is the realization of a dream for long time home winemakers Mike and Kendall Officer. After a decade of producing award-winning wines at home for family and friends, they crushed their first "commercial" grapes in 1998.

Focusing on Zinfandel and Rhone-based varieties, their goal is simple but ambitious: to produce small lots of world-class wines from some of California's most exceptional vineyards. To help achieve this goal and ensure a continuous source of high quality fruit, Mike and Kendall also purchased one of Russian River Valley's benchmark old-vine Zinfandel vineyards. Planted in 1927 by Italian immigrant Alcide Pelletti (with some occasional direction from his father-in-law Giuseppi Frati), they began producing wine from that site in 2001. Additionally, they have secured a nearby two-acre, predominantly Mourvèdre vineyard planted in 1910, and several other old-vines Zin vineyards, which they meticulously farm themselves."
