Description

Cline Ancient Vines, Zinfandel, Sonoma, .375L

Cline Family Cellars is a family-owned and operated winery in Sonoma, California, built on a passion for winemaking and rooted in respect for the land. Fred Cline started Cline Family Cellars in 1982 in Oakley, California, making his first vintages from original plantings of Mourvedre, Zinfandel, and Carignane, some of which dated back to the 1880s. In 1989, Fred purchased a 350-acre horse farm in Carneros and moved the winery to Sonoma County. As one of the original Rhone Rangers, he began planting varietals that included a number of vineyards dedicated to Syrah, Viognier, Marsanne, and Roussanne. Since those first plantings, Fred and his wife Nancy have continued to plant vineyards throughout Sonoma County, expanding to include more classic varieties like Pinot Noir, Merlot, and Chardonnay. Our aim is to be stewards of the land, not only through our natural and sustainable Green String farming methods but through an awareness of bringing interconnected systems into harmony. We are committed to nurturing the land and creating wines that reflect the bounty of these complex and perfect ecosystems. There are no compromises when it comes to consistency and quality. From excellent vineyards to skilled teams working at the winery, to updated systems—we do it all. The result is an expansive, award-winning portfolio of wines with a range of styles and offerings to appeal to the novice and the enthusiast.

CorkQueen

Nice deep purple in the glass. Dark fruit and baking spices on the nose. Palate has familiar Zin peppery spice. Smooth and well balanced. Definitely a wine to share with friends!

Winemaker

Floral and lush with pretty; spicy flavors; aromatic, dense, and long, this expression hails from a consistently value-priced winery.

Tasting

Ancient Vines Zinfandel shows spicy, bright strawberry, with coffee and chocolate characters. Ripe fruit and soft tannins make this a mouth-coating rich vintage. Aging on new and used oak has lent this wine a subtle vanilla quality that nicely complements the explosive fruit notes.

Pairing

Best paired with:

  • Beef
  • Lamb
  • Poultry
