Food Pairings for Cline Cellars Zinfandel Sonoma County
A bit disappointing, but still quite drinkable.
Very nice Zin.
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.
medium red color, fruity, spicey, less dry but a clean finish. very good
I was very impressed with this wine.
External Reviews for Cline Cellars Zinfandel Sonoma County
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.
Juicy and ripe, with modest black cherry, caramel and spice flavors. Drink now.
Wine Tasting NotesThe 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.
"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." --Winemaker's note
