Carlisle Montafi Ranch Zinfandel is medium-dark to dark ruby-purple. Gorgeous aromas of blackberries and raspberries are laced with notes of menthol and spice are on the nose. The palate is medium-full to full-bodied but amazingly precise and focused. The finish is seemingly perfectly structured, with spice and dark berry characters contributing to its length.

Whether it’s the slightly higher elevation or just plain luck, somehow the 82-year old vines at Montafi managed to escape the devastating late spring frost. As usual, fermentation was indigenous. After nineteen days on the skins, it was pressed to all French oak, 33% new. Carlisle Montafi Ranch Zinfandel is bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Carlisle Winery & Vineyards is a small Sonoma County winery specializing in the production of old vine - vineyards designated Zinfandels and red Rhone varieties. While they like their wines to be bold and intensely flavored, each reflecting its vintage and vineyard, they also strive to create wines of balance, complexity, and nuance. Their goal is always the same: grow and source outstanding fruit, do as little as possible to it, and bottle outstanding, pleasurable wine at the fairest price possible.
