This old-vine vineyard has turned out a complex, age-worthy Zin. Itrsquo;s quite pungent and spicy, with dark black fruit and wild herbs running straight through to the finish. It really is a monster wine mdash; backward, tannic and oaky. Give it at least two years to soften, then enjoy with a grilled burger.

Cline Cellars is proud to release its first vintage of Live Oak Zinfandel. The wine displays tremendous extraction, a firm and balanced structure of acid and fine grain tannins with a sweet, ripe raspberry flavor and lots of flesh. Delicious now and will age beautifully for over a decade.

Complex and concentrated, with a ripe, rich core of mint and cherry, currant and wild berry flavors that are well focused, finishing with firm, chewy tannins. Drink now.

Reveals a more saturated purple color, a bold, expansive flavor profile, admirable weight, and an undeniably macho style. It might be short on finesse, but it does not cheat the taster in terms of flavor depth and mouth filling capacity.

A dark, intense, meaty style, with lots of tar, stewed plum, wild berry and mineral flavors . Turns thick and chewy on the finish, where the tannins are coarse and dry. Best from 2000 through 2004.

Ripe, with black walnut, mint and black currant aromas and dried blueberry, smoked meat and spice flavors that end with gritty tannins. Best from 2008 through 2012.
