Carlisle 2018 Papera Ranch Zinfandel Sonoma County

Medium-dark garnet-ruby. Heady, concentrated aromas of macerated cherries and raspberries are complemented by notes of blood orange. Holy great sniffs Batman! The wine enters the mouth with medium-full to full body and offers flavors of black raspberry and amarena, Italian black cherry. Zesty acidity in the lingering finish bodes well for further development. Optimum enjoyment should be from 2022 to 2028. Blend: 96% Zinfandel, 4% Carignan.

Jeb Dunnuck - 96 Points
"A bigger, richer effort based on 96% Zinfandel and 4% Carignan from a site in the Russian River, the 2018 Zinfandel Papera Ranch offers a meaty, powerful bouquet of black cherries, red plums, Asian spices, and chocolate. This carries to a full-bodied, beautifully textured, opulent Zinfandel that has ripe tannins as well as the seamless, silky style of the vintage. It's beautifully done."

Vinous - 95 Points
"The 2018 Zinfandel Papera Ranch captures all the exuberance of Russian River Valley. Succulent dark cherry, plum, spice, new leather and cedar build in a sumptuous, creamy Zinfandel that is showing so well today. Bright red toned fruit and sweet floral notes saturate the finish effortlessly. Best of all, the 2018 will drink well with minimal cellaring, Drinking window: 2022 - 2033."

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 95 Points
"The 2018 Zinfandel Papera Ranch is blended with 4% Carignan and was aged in 23% new French oak. It has a vibrant ruby-purple color and opens slowly to charcuterie, autumn leaves and graphite that give way to broody cherry fruit, wildflowers and licorice. The palate explodes with intense, juicy, layered flavors with notable purity and loads of floral perfume."

Wine Spectator - 94 Points
"Balances harmony and subtle torque with compelling raspberry and blueberry flavors that are laced with orange peel and smoky pepper notes, taking on richness toward the supple finish. Drink now through 2030."
