The acids are bright, but not at all intrusive. This is another striking Zinfandel from Carlisle. There is wonderful depth and pliancy here.

It was the earliest vintage ever for Mike Officer and probably he’ll beat that early harvest record in 2015. In this case, he was finished by October 6, which was a first, and it will be interesting to see if he eclipses that in 2015, which was looking even earlier. The production levels were relatively abundant for Mike Officer and the wines fruit-forward, although softer and less reserved than some of the 2013s. While not quite as opaque in color, they are loaded with fruit, supple and luscious. The only white wine, the Grüner Veltliner Steiner Vineyard, makes an appearance in 2014, and it’s another beauty – it’s crisp and the only wine in bottle. The other wines all stood out and will, no doubt, merit outstanding ratings across the board for their intensity, richness, and full-bodied power. If you already know what Mike Officer does, and the style of his wines, you won’t be disappointed in his 2014s. You may even like them as much as any vintage, given the fact that this year shows a lot of up-front fruit and charm. - Robert Parker

Wine Spectator, January 2017
Well-knit and precise, with a core of lively acidity and tannins to balance the ripe fruit, showing notes of blackberry, dark fruitcake spices, sandalwood and pepper. Drink now through 2028. — T.F.

The nose is full of black fruits, like walking into a ripe blackberry patch in the heat of summer – ripe fruit, bramble, a touch of earth. Secondary notes of menthol, wet river rock, vanilla and cedar round out the aromatic bouquet. The entry on the palate is full of sweet, ripe back fruit, and while big (15% alcohol), it is balanced and structured. The old vines (planted in 1934) provide a synergistic balance of fruit, acidity, spice and tannin. Drink now – 2027+.
