WTN: 2001 Carlisle Zinfandel (Carlisle Vineyard)

2001 Carlisle Zinfandel (Carlisle Vineyard)

Nose full of quite ripe plum, briary stuff and raisins. The palate follows with plenty of jam and the plum gives way to a red fruit/strawberry profile. Seems to be some spiciness on the finish but the noticeable alcohol, which I am particularly sensitive to, seems to get in the way and I had some difficulty getting past this aspect of the wine. While not a quaff for the faint-hearted and a bit over-the-top for my tastes, I can see where this would be appealing to many palates. Heck, the lovely NJ enjoyed this a lot more than I did.
