Carlisle Two Acres Red Wine 2017

SKU 398



Winery Notes:

Medium-dark to dark ruby-garnet. Cool aromas of cherry, red licorice whips, game, and rose petal. The wine glides over the palate only as Two Acres can, displaying flavors of cherry, cured game meat, and a pleasant woodsy spice. Tannins emerging in the finish bode well for further development. Enjoy this California original from 2024 through 2034.

Jeb DunnuckI’ve always loved the Two Acres cuvée from Officer, and his 2017 Two Acres doesn’t disappoint, although I think it’s a small step back from the 2016. Mostly Mourvèdre from deep loam and clay soils, it offers tons of smoked dark fruits, licorice, olive, and plenty of meatiness to go with a ripe, textured, sexy style on the palate. It has plenty of tannins and it certainly offers pleasure today, but 2-3 years of bottle age are going to be your friend.
