A luxurious sipper! Coffee and strawberry please the nose as they lead to an intriguing mouthfeel. Blackberry jam washes over the soft, round palate dotted with white pepper. Plum notes go creamy on the finish with a dusting of heather. The winery’s oldest, most historic, and “shyestbearing” Zinfandel blocks contribute to 94% of this blend.

Lively and supple, with floral raspberry and fresh pepper aromas and sleekly appealing cherry and licorice flavors that glide lightly along the finish. Drink now through 2022.

The 2016 Ancient Vines Zinfandel shows spicy, bright strawberry, with coffee and chocolate characters. Ripe fruit and soft tannins make this a mouth-coating rich vintage. Aging on new and used oak has lent this wine a subtle vanilla quality that nicely complements the explosive fruit notes. Enjoy now or cellar for 5 to 7 years. ~ Winery notes

Very enjoyable. Good value. - Very drinkable and satisfying wine, after letting it breathe for a couple of hours to mellow out. Good value for the price. Overall it has a very agreeable character.

Great Zinfandel - Cline really hit the mark with this 2016 vintage! The nose is a little muted but it more then makes up for it in the mouth feel and flavor. Super easy to drink with just the right amount of Tannin's and Fruit very complex for the price. Case buy for sure!
