PRODUCT OVERVIEW:
The 2016 Cline Cellars Ancient Vines Zinfandel is sourced from Cline's oldest Zinfandel blocks in Contra Costa County. These vines were planted here over 100 years ago and produce the fruit of stunning concentration. Grapes underwent a very gentle crushing to ensure a large proportion of whole berries in the must, which contributed to the explosive fruit character of the wine. The wine was aged in American oak barrels for 7 months (35% new). It shows spicy, bright strawberry on the nose and palate, with coffee and chocolate characters. Ripe fruit and soft tannins make this a mouth-coating rich vintage. Aging in new and seasoned 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 (adapted from winery notes).
