Winemaker's Notes:

The Bridgehead Zinfandel is perpetually the most refi ned and elegant of the several Zinfandels that we produce. Notes of spice, bright blackberry and toasty vanilla with a fi ne-grained structure, balanced acids and tannins are prevalent. This wine will age beautifully 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.
