"The 2008 vintage produced lower yields than the previous vintage resulting in wines with deep color and rich, explosive fruit. This wine offers aromas of black cherries and fresh strawberries and toasty oak. On the palate, there are layers of dark fruit intermingled with sweet vanilla and spice. This wine has an incredibly smooth and long, lingering finish. Our winemaker believes that it is the best Klinker Brick Old Vine Zinfandel that we have produced to date." -Winery
This hearty, full-bodied red comes from Zinfandel vines that are well over 50 years old. Aromas of dark fruit contrast with fresh herbal notes; this also shows intense concentration, packed with berry flavors set off by spicy oak. -Astorwines.com
$42 at Cafe Roka. very smooth, pairs great with food, especially our stuffed dates. excellent mid-priced bottle. need to find out where this sells
thought would be a little more full body and oak. was good but not for $20
light and crisp. finish is slightly oaked. fun sipper.
spicy, smokey (hints of bacon), full-bodied
