Winemaker's Notes

As always, the California Zinfandel is a challenging and rewarding wine to produce. Severe selection criteria and master blending show in the final product, which showcases a wide array of dark berry fruit including black cherry and raspberry. Additionally, spice notes and a lasting finish of vanilla from oak aging and firm, supple tannins add complexity to this wine. This wine is ready to drink now and will continue to develop complexity over the next three to four years.

I have normally liked Cline wine but this zinfandel was sort of ok... it was drinkable but didn't have that berry zin taste that I prefer. I like it to be more full bodied and this was pretty bland. I didn't even finish the bottle...

Nothing about this wine impressed me but its color--the sort of sunny velvet blush that suckers you into believing. The seduction even moved a step forward when the nose gave away no hint of the rusty, rough lashing the tongue had coming. Seriously, this wine deceived me and I found the aftermath a vinegary disappointment. 30 minutes of air did nothing to take away the tin like coating this wine leaves behind and I wonder if the storage perhaps was bad on this bottle. Other reviewers have not liked it that much either. I would avoid this wine in the future. but keep Cline in mind as I have had very good wine from them several times.
