Cline Cellars Ancient Vines Zinfandel
From very old vines in Contra Costa County, 3% Carignan in the blend and aged in American oak for 10 months. Ancient Vines Zinfandel shows spicy, bright strawberry, coffee and chocolate characters. Ripe fruit and soft tannins make this a mouth-coating rich wine. Aging in oak has given the wine a vanilla quality that nicely complements the explosive fruit notes. Loves chargrilled foods. Or in front of a fire. Brilliant value given the quality of the fruit.
