WTN: Carlisle TheDerivative '16...(short/boring)

by TomHill » Wed Nov 21, 2018 12:59 pm

Had to crack into my Carlisle order last night, so tried:
1. Carlisle TheDerivative f'(x) WW (13.8%; 40% Muscadelle+ 38% Colombard/21% Semillon/1% Palomino; 150 cs) 2016: Light yellow color; quite fragrant floral/appley/apple blossom/pear/slight muscatty very attractive perfumed nose; lightly tart slight tangy/metallic lightly floral/pear/apple/apple blossom/bit muscatty slight chalky/perfumed talc bit spicy flavor; very long lightly tart clean/crisp/refreshing some floral/pear/apple/bit muscatty bit chalky/perfumed talc finish; not a profound white but just a bright/refreshing/clean-as-a-whistle white; probably will put on weight and become really interesting w/ 2-3 yrs of age; delicious stuff. $23.00

A wee BloodyPulpit:
1. Since Mike lost access to the MonteRosso Semillon, he had to make up for it w/ some RossiRanch Semillon. So production of this delicious wine dropped from 400 cs to only 150 cs.
