Cline Zinfandel Big Break 20 Usa 2007
Wine Tasting Notes Eucalyptus mint, firm structure and exotic spice are key elements in our Big Break Zinfandel. Always one of our most robust wines, the vintage oozes with power, revealing crisp dark wild berries, hints of dark chocolate with vanilla and spicy oak. A distinct dusty berry character (reminiscent of picking wild black berries in the hot summer sun), what we affectionately describe as our "Oakley terroir," effuses predominately from this wine. This "Big Break" Zinfandel, which can be enjoyed young, should also benefit from 5 to 7 years of cellaring.
Tasted at UNLVino 4/10/10
First impression is that this one leads with massive sweetness. It fades almost instantly, but was quite interesting for sure. Behind it, the wine smooths into a great zinfandel berry finish. Going to re-taste to refine my opinion; it was quite late into the night when I had this first one.
Found to be very full bodied and succulent. Was the best of the reds tried that evening by a unanimous margin. Dark with a very smooth , complex flavor.
