Eucalyptus mint, firm structure and exotic spice are key elements in Cline's 2006 Big
Break Zinfandel. Always a robust wine, this vintage oozes with power, revealing
crisp strawberries, exotic spice, as well as a toasted oak characteristic. It holds a
distinct dusty berry characteristic (reminiscent of picking wild black berries in
the hot summer sun), what Cline affectionately describes as their "Oakley terroir".
Big Break Zinfandel can be enjoyed young but it should also benefit from 5 to 7
years of cellaring. Enjoy this wine with big, spicy foods with plenty of zip, such
as blackened Ahi.
