Mike Officer makes great Zinfandels, I’ve said that before, but the first Carlisle wine I ever tasted was his Bennett Valley Syrah. Unlike Edmunds St. John, Mike’s wines embrace the power and richness that California effortlessly offers. These tend to be big wines.

What really seals the deal with these wines is their texture. Carlisle wines are the definition of seamless and these Syrahs carry their weight quite elegantly.
