(Net Item - no discounts apply)

Carlisle picked the old vines of the Piner-Olivet Ranches in several  passes to give themselves a broad palette of flavors, aromas and textures for a final, multi-vineyard blend of heady concentration. Brilliant medium to medium-dark garnet-ruby. Very captivating, hi-toned aromas of macerated cherries, raspberry, and sweet brown tobacco. There's much to enjoy about this wine, and you'll definitely have a hard time putting it down!

Former software engineer Mike Officer started Carlisle in 1998 in his garage with the help of his wife Kendall and college buddy Jay Maddox, and he’s never looked back. Today, he is recognized along with Turley and Bedrock as a top artisan producer of Zinfandel, and we would place him in the same "enthusiast-garagiste-perfectionist" category as Russell Bevan, whose wines you've embraced in a huge way. Officer sells most of his wines to his mailing list and restaurants.
