Winemaker Notes

The Big Break Vineyard, named for Big Break Road, which runs adjacent to the block, has traditionally produced one of our most powerful and individual lots of Zinfandel. An early ripener, Big Break Zinfandel is year in and year out among the first lots of grapes we pick. The combination of extremely sandy, well-drained soils; dry-farming; century old, head-trained vines and the unique band of cooling air from the San Joaquin and Sacramento Rivers that favors Oakleys best vineyard sites create a synergy of elements that is ideal for ripening Zinfandel and expressing the full character of the fruit. In fact, this block is situated only a few hundred yards from the bank of the San Joaquin River.

Image of winery
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.
