Winemaker Notes

Eucalyptus mint, firm structure and exotic spice are key elements in our 2008 Big Break Zinfandel. This vintage oozes with power, revealing crisp strawberries, exotic spice and toasted oak.

Enjoy this wine with big, spicy foods with plenty of zip, such as Blackened Ahi.

Critical Acclaim

WS 88
Wine Spectator
Loaded with smoky aromas and flavors, plus lively black cherry and freshly cracked pepper. The flavors are juicy and zesty, with just enough complexity and tannins to keep this interesting. Drink now through 2015. 1,200 cases made.

Connoisseurs' Guide
Very ripe, very full-bodied and edging away from fresh fruit in favor of dried berries and plums, this weighty and outgoing Zin is in all ways a big one and is not the wine we would want with lighter foods. That said, it is rich and fairly powerful stuff, and it will find its place with rustic dishes of garlicky braised meats and well-seasoned roasts.

Cline Winery Video

Cline Family Cellars is a family-owned and operated winery founded by Fred and Nancy Cline in 1982 in Oakley, CA. The winery facilities were relocated in 1991 to the Sonoma Valley, on a 350-acre estate in the Carneros district. The Cline winery and vineyards are built on a foundation of deeply rooted respect for the land and love of winemaking. Recognized for its rich portfolio of wines, Cline is one of the pioneers of California’s Rhone Rangers movement, and the largest holder of 100+ year-old-vine vineyards in California.

A major force on the global playing field, California is the world’s fourth largest wine-producing region on the planet and the majority of land under vine here is devoted to red varieties, covering nearly double the vineyard acreage of whites.

While the state’s incredibly diverse terrain and microclimates allow for countless red wine styles, the one factor unifying all California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season, which leads to well-developed and fully ripened fruit.

The most famous region today, of course, is the acclaimed Napa Valley, where Cabernet Sauvignon reigns as king.

Sonoma County, nestled between Napa Valley and the Pacific Ocean, claims great variability in geography and microclimates. Here world-class Pinot Noir is possible from Sonoma’s cooler sites while old, gnarly Zinfandel vines survived Prohibition.

The Central Coast, Lodi and the Sierra Foothills also excel in the production of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and remain active frontiers for newer varieties, namely Rhône and Spanish.

The cool Anderson Valley in California’s North Coast region is a fantastic source of Pinot noir.
