Winemaker Notes

Medium-dark to dark garnet-ruby. Scents of ripe red cherries are mixed with hints of iron and dusty, red earth. Quintessential Dry Creek. Full-bodied on entry but with ample acidity. Not at all fat and ponderous.

Blend: 63% Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel (Teldeschi Ranch) , 30% Dry Creek Zinfandel (Mounts Ranch), 5% Dry Creek Valley Petit Sirah (Del Carlo Ranch), 2% Russian River Valley Carignane (Papera Ranch)

Critical Acclaim

WS 95
Wine Spectator
This is what great Dry Creek Zinfandel is all about. Sleek, with beautifully pure, focused and complex notes of black cherry, fresh earthy clay and toasty vanilla spice. The flavors build richness and depth on the finish.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Primarily from the Teldeschi Ranch Vineyard (planted in 1885), the 2007 Zinfandel Dry Creek includes some Petite Sirah and Carignane in the blend. The elegantly-styled 2007 reveals a Burgundian-like, complex bouquet of flowers, red and black fruits, sweet forest floor, and a hint of spice. Medium to full-bodied, pure, and lively, it should drink nicely for 4-5 years.

Carlisle  Winery Image

Carlisle is a small “Mom n’ Pop” Sonoma County winery specializing in the production of old-vine, vineyard designated Zinfandels and red Rhône varieties (Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre, and Petite Sirah). They also produce three delicious white wines, two of which are blends from historic, old-vine vineyards plus Sonoma County's first ever Grüner Veltliner.

While Carlisle likes 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.

The goal is always the same - grow and source the finest fruit, do as little as possible to it, and bottle outstanding, pleasurable wine at the fairest price possible.

Dry Creek Valley Wine

Sonoma County, California

View all products

A multifaceted and highly reputable sub-region of Sonoma, Dry Creek Valley is responsible for a wide range of wine styles—both red and white. One of the smallest AVAs in California, Dry Creek Valley has a winning combination of ideal geography and climate. Fertile, well-drained soils create concentrated varietal character while long, warm days, bookended by cool nights, allow grapes to reach full phenolic ripeness and balance. The warm and welcoming appellation is home to a number of family-owned vineyards and wineries that place a strong emphasis on sustainable farming practices.

Zinfandel reigns supreme here and still produces in a great number of very old vineyards—often 100 years old or older. These old vines create a powerful, voluptuous and sultry wine unlike those of any other region. Sauvignon Blanc, the valley’s signature white grape, also performs exceptionally well. Many other varieties grow comfortably here, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Syrah. Petite Sirah is often found in blends with Zinfandel.

Unapologetically bold, spice-driven and jammy, Zinfandel has secured it’s title as the darling of California vintners by adapting well to the states’ diverse microclimates and landscapes. Born in Croatia, it later made its way to southern Italy where it was named Primitivo. Fortunately, the imperial nursery of Vienna catalogued specimens of the vine, which sourced a journey to New England in 1829. Parading the true American spirit, Zinfandel found a new home in California during the Gold Rush of 1849. Somm Secret—California's ancient vines of Zinfandel are those that survived the neglect of Prohibition; today these vines produce the most concentrated, ethereal and complex examples.
