Another winner from Carlisle.🍷

Bright, ruby red in color with a pale pink rim. Nose of fresh baked bread, orange peel, raspberry, lavender and a faint note of cocoa. Very engaging. The flavors have amazing depth and richness; ripe blackberry, dark cherry, leather, black tea and some cracked pepper. Silky, integrated tannins. Long, long finish with hints of baking spices, oak and blueberry.🍇

This is a marvelous wine. It paired fantastic with a grilled bone-in ribeye. I give it 93 points IMHO.👍
