2011 Cline Cellars Zinfandel Lodi

Winemaker's Notes

As always the California Zinfandel is a challenging and rewarding wine to produce. Severe selection criteria and master blending show in the final product, which showcases a wide array of dark berry fruit including black cherry and strawberry. Additionally, spice notes and a lasting finish of vanilla from oak aging and firm, supple tannins add complexity to this wine.

The Sonoma Zinfandel shows concentrated spicy strawberry, firm tannin structure and a balanced acidity. It has a mouth-coating richness and depth and a subtle vanilla quality that compliments the dark fruit flavors.

    Really smooth. Assertive aroma. Long finish. Not sweet.
