Cline Cellars Zinfandel California 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"As always the California Zinfandel is a challenging and rewarding wine to produce. We continue to strive to maintain the quality and price people have come to expect from our "Cal Zin." Severe selection criteria and master blending show in the final product, which showcases a wide array of dark berry fruit including black cherry and raspberry. Additionally, spice notes and a lasting finish of vanilla from oak aging and firm, supple tannins add complexity to a wine whose average vine age is, remarkably, more than 50 years old." -Winery

This is one of my favourite zinfandels - it's a regular on my wine rack. Guests love its bold and smooth flavour with lovely aftertones - its wonderful with a bucatini pasta dish or with strong cheeses. Love this wine.

Lodi Zin described on the bottle as strawberry & other fruits, but i found it to have strong tobacco smoke. very likeable, but high sulfites gave me an allergic reaction.

    Our lodi zinfandel is a challenging and rewarding wine to produce. Strict selection criteria and master blending show in the final product, which showcases dark berry flavors including black cherry and strawberry. Spice notes, a lasting finish of vanilla from oak aging, and firm, supple tannins add complexity. - WineryAlcohol: 14.0%Total Acidity: .66g/100mlFinal pH: 3.84Residual Sugar: .35%
