Clif Family the Climber Red 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Climber Red brings together our favorite varietals to create a versatile, food-friendly wine that unveils new aromas and flavors with each sip. Fermented separately and then blended prior to bottling, each varietal component adds its own special characteristic to the wine — jammy fruit from the Zinfandel, smoky meat characters from the Syrah, juiciness and deep ruby color from the Petite Sirah and structure from the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The fruit comes from sustainably farmed vineyards located in Mendocino and Lodi.

This is a delicious red wine that is medium bodied and well structured. This is the perfect food wine with chicken or red meat dishes. I purchased the wine at the Clif Bar winery where the wine is discounted at $5 a bottle. This is an amazing price for this wine that is selling elsewhere for as much as three times as much.

This is a big, hot wine. There is sufficient fruit and spice but the oak is just a touch overpowering and the tannins need to be a little more gripping for this style of wine to really work for me. Overall a good not great bottle of zin based wine.
