Winemaker's Notes:

The Bridgehead Vineyard Zinfandel is consistently the most refined and elegant of the several Zins that we produce. Our 1999 Bridgehead Zinfandel, the wine is firm and deep with ripe, dusty wild berry character, chocolate aromas and a spicy pepperiness. Benefiting from a fine-grained structure of balanced acids and tannins, the wine will age beautifully for well over the next 5 to 7 years.

About Cline:

Fred Cline founded Cline Cellars in 1982, in Oakley, California. In 1991, the winery facilities relocated to the Sonoma Valley on a 350 acre estate in the Carneros District. The Cline Brothers, Fred and Matt, are Zinfandel and Rhone varietal specialists. Their holdings include some of the oldest and rarest vines in California. They are best known for the one hundred year old plantings of Carignane, Mourvedre and Zinfandel grapes they farm in Oakley, California. The Mourvedre represent approximately 85% of the state's total supply of this fascinating and versatile varietal. This treasure is the inspiration for Cline Cellars many "Rhone style" bottlings.
