Cline Ancient Vines Zinfandel 2021
|California, Central Coast, Contra Costa
This Zinfandel underwent near total destemming and a very gentle crushing to ensure a large proportion of whole berries in the must which contributes to the explosive fruit character of the wine. The grapes are fermented in temperature-controlled open-top concrete tanks at the optimum temperature to extract rich flavors and provide excellent color. Enhancing the strawberry, raspberry, orange zest and vanilla characteristics. Wonderful to pair with prosciutto and arugula pizza or a mouthwatering meat lasagna.
A fruit bomb, with just enough character to keep things interesting. Reveals jammy blackberry and licorice flavors that zip along the finish. Drink now through 2030.
