Cline's Zinfandel grapes are sourced from dry-farmed vines planted more than 100 years ago, thus deserving the name Ancient Vines. The depth and concentration of that aging vine wisdom shows in the glass. Notes of blackberry and toasty, black fruit, tar, smoke and toasty oak. Full-bodied. Perfect for BBQ meats and a campfire. This is a truly mouth-filling wine. Big, long finish like a Broadway number... it's a dazzling kick-line for the senses.

Zinfandel food pairings: hearty meat meals, pasta, aged cheddar, pulled pork.

For the last century Clines' Ancient's Vines have been rooted deep in the sandy soils of Contra Costa County's Oakley Vineyards. Warm, sunny days and cool nights along the San Joaquin and Sacramento Rivers provide unique growing conditions to produce robust, intense red wines. - Community Wine Reviews
