Cline Cellars Zinfandel Sonoma County 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes The diversity in terroir from the two selected vineyards creates a complex and concentrated wine that has flavors of strawberries and a hint of spice balanced by mild acidity. Subtle nuances of vanilla from aging in French oak complement Sonoma Zinfandels explosive fruit flavors and velvety texture. An excellent accompaniment to grilled meats and vegetables or Parmesan risotto, this wine can be enjoyed now or cellared for five to seven years.

If you need a Zin, this is fine but not great. Not a bad value. Some spicy dark fruit on the nose, typical zin body and decent finish with fruit and a bit of vanilla.

Wine Tasting NotesChardonnay, Palomino, Viognier, and RieslingFirst and foremost, when selecting grapes and wines for the OAKLEY fourWHITES program, we are particularly conscious of good acid balance, intensity of fruit and what each, single varietal will offer to the blend as a whole. The blend offers an added degree of complexity with pear and green apple notes. We intend this wine to be a uniquely Cline interpretation of an everyday table white - adventurous, affordable and delicious.

Wine Tasting NotesSauvignon Blanc 50%, and Chardonnay 31%, Viognier 10% and Pinot Grigio 9%.This bright fresh wine exhibits grapefruit, gooseberry and orange flavors. No oak or malolactic fermentation was used in this blend. white truck pairs well with spicy foods or be a delightful treat all by itself.
