Winemaker Notes

This rich wine has flavors of ripe raspberry and blackberry, chocolate and coffee, spices and white pepper. Cline Cellars 1998 Ancient Vines Zinfandel has a great spicy oak character and a long, lingering finish. Aged twelve months in French and American oak, this 1998 Zinfandel has been produced from 80 to 110 year old vines from our historic vine holdings, some of the most ancient in California (60% Contra Costa, 37% Lodi, 3% Napa).

This wine is a great match with grilled meats, red and white pasta sauces, spicy and barbequed dishes or pizza. Enjoy now, or cellar for five to seven years.

1998 Ancient Vines Zinfandel
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.
