Cline Cellars Zinfandel California 2012
"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
Nice everyday zin.
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.

Cline has always done well with Zinfandel, and the 2012 Zinfandel Lodi (100% Zinfandel; 150,000 cases produced) is a straightforward, soft, consumer-friendly example revealing attractive briery, peppery fruit, no hard edges, attractive weight, and a soft finish. It is meant to be drunk in its first year of life.
