Cline Cellars Ancient Vines Zinfandel California 2011
To taste the depth and complexity of flavor of an ancient vine grape just before it is harvested is to understand why the wine made from them is so special. Ancient Vines Zinfandel has flavors of dark berries, coffee and chocolate with great vanilla oak character and a long lingering finish.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
plum, blackberries on the nose.....medium bodied with a smooth long finish
A wine we purchased a case of for Anne/Andy's last February's wedding. The last bottle went down at Christmas dinner 2013. Everybody who tasted it had good things to say about it. We will miss the taste that goes with the memories.
