Cline Cellars Zinfandel Sonoma 2011

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."-Winemaker
