Carlisle 2012 Two Acres Red Blend
Russian River Valley
Wine Advocate 90 Rating
Consistently one of my favorite wines from Mike Officer is his Proprietary Red Two Acres, which comes from an old-field blend dominated by Mourvèdre (78%) and the rest small quantities of Petite Sirah, Syrah, Carignane, Peloursin and Alicante Bouchet. The delicious, Rhône Ranger-styled 2012 Proprietary Red Two Acres saw no new oak, and was bottled unfined and unfiltered, and achieved 14.8% natural alcohol. It possesses supple tannins (always a challenge with Mourvèdre) as well as lots of new saddle leather, blueberry, black raspberry, earth and Mediterranean herb notes. This lush, medium to full-bodied, delicious, pure, well-made red should drink nicely for 3-4 years.
