Cline Cellars Zinfandel Contra Costa County Bridgehead 2010

Member Review by Peter Choy:

Opaque purple in color, with an interesting nose of black pepper, black cherry and cedar. Medium acidity with a high alcohol content, medium+ tannin and full body, exhibiting medium intensity palate of blackberry, prune and animal skin. Medium length. Good and high-priced, ready to drink but can develop further.

Just love it. I went to Sonoma in 2010 and saved this one until today (21 Feb 2011). You don't know what you have here, and you can't get this in Scandinavia.

Excellent quality wine/price. Jammy taste with underlying blackberry, vanilla and a hint of chocolate.

Our Bridgehead vineyard is named for Bridgehead Road in Oakley, California, to which it runs adjacent. This vineyard consistently produces one of our most individual and refined lots of Zinfandel.

Wine Tasting NotesOur Bridgehead Zinfandel has notes of spice and bright blackberry. The wine is firm and deep with notes of chocolate and toasty vanilla. Benefiting from a fine-grained structure of balanced acids and tannins, the wine will age beautifully for well over the next 5 to 7 years. Its claret-like style and intriguingly complex earthy-berry character make this one of California's most distinct and our most treasured Zinfandels.
