Really enjoyed this wine. Not sure which vintage I had though...probably 2007 though. Definitely recommend it.

I agree with the reviews on this one. Reminds me of a Saintsbury pinot on steroids - with the same jammieness.

Dark dried fruit and chocolate in the nose with notes of cherry, earth, and vegetation. Nice fruit on the palate with non-spicy herbal notes. Medium body and smooth finish; big and mildly tannic but balanced overall. Yum.

As always the California Zinfandel is a challenging and rewarding wine to produce. Severe selection criteria and master blending show in the final product, which showcases a wide array of dark berry fruit including black cherry and strawberry. Additionally, spice notes and a lasting finish of vanilla from oak aging and firm, supple tannins add complexity to this wine. - Charles G.

Juicy and ripe, with modest black cherry, caramel and spice flavors. Drink now.

The 2009 Zinfandel California (80,000 cases produced) is a straightforward, jammy, richly fruity effort that makes a mockery of many overpriced Zinfandels. It delivers plenty of briery, peppery, spicy fruit in a medium-bodied, luscious format meant to be consumed over the next 1ndash;2 years.

Clinersquo;s California bottling may be, year in and year out, the best $10 Zin in the state. Old vine vineyards are the reason. The wine is built on a backbone of Contra Costa county fruit from low yielding, head-pruned vines that average more than 50 years of age. Vibrant black cherry and raspberry fruit, layered seductively, builds into a tangy climax that is bursting with fresh, jammy flavors.

Grainy and red with traces of black fruit, this winersquo;s rusticity hints at its old-vine sources with a firm grip. It would perk up to a black-and-blue sirloin.

As always, the California Zinfandel is both challenging and rewarding to produce. Severe selection criteria and master blending are evident in the final product, which showcases a wide array of dark berry flavors-especially black cherry and strawberry. Firm, supple tannins are complemented by nice spice notes and a lasting vanilla fi nish, both derived from oak aging. Though ready to drink now, the California Zinfandel will continue to develop complexity over the next three to four years. - Charles G. Tsegeletos, Winemaker ** SOLD OUT **
