Carlisle Saitone Russian River Valley Zinfandel Wine
Carlisle Saitone Russian River Valley Zinfandel Wine is a medium-dark to dark ruby-purple. Black raspberry, licorice and dried orange peel greet the nose. On the palate, a potpourri of berry fruit with a soupçon of Asian spice. Full-bodied and supple on entry, the wine shows plenty of verve and definition thanks to healthy acidity and fine-grained tannins. Although Carlisle, Papera, and Saitone are all a stone’s throw from each other, each wine is distinct and unique.
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.
