Cherry, raspberry, a lot of sweetness, but a nice low-key Zin. Got it for $9.99 at Earth Fare, so no reason to take issue with it.

Dark purple in the glass that leave distinct legs down the glass. A red licorice aroma that blends the fruit with something a little more earthy. However, you could definately pick up the alcohol (14%). Soft, rounded oak. Initial impression was a bland Zin but as I was drinking was appreciating the softness.

Mushrooms on nose and berries on palate with "silky" tannins. Went well with steak with an Asian sauce. Sturdy, needs hearty food to keep up, I don't think it would be very good on its own. Will try Cline again!

This wine has a peppery, floral nose and almost a meaty taste. It paired well with hamburgers and was one of the favorites.

I liked this one, but not as much as the last vintage. I'll give it another try later this year to see if it gets a little better. It seemed a little bitter or something.

A subtle hint of tobacco leaves in the nose and the aftertaste. Pleasantly acid Firm tannins.

3. 2007 Cline Ancient Vines Zinfandel Sonoma County, California (14.5%) – Nose: upon pouring, smelled almost syrupy, reminiscent of a cotton candy sweet, maturing into a distinct vanilla (high oak aging), plum flavors typical of Zinfandel, yet not overly fruity/sweet (especially compared to the Four Vines) Lamarr: B+ (good wine, simply put, out of the gate was a little tannic, yet after about 40 minutes decanting, started to show its true colors [and those colors: red, white, and f**king blue! Americana, baby],) Hector: B+ (Took a little time to warm-up, tannic at first, but smooths out) Alastor: B+ (Like the Syrah a bit more, but still good)

The 2007 Ancient Vines Zinfandel shows wonderful dusty raspberry, blackberry, white pepper and spice, with coffee and chocolate characters. Ripe fruit and soft tannins make this a mouth-coating rich vintage. Aging in new and used wood has lent this wine a subtle vanilla quality that nicely complements the explosive fruit notes. Our Zinfandel pairs well with New York steak, red and white pasta sauces, spicy and barbecued dishes or turkey with all the trimmings. Enjoy now or cellar for up to five years.

Fred Cline has restored some of California's oldest vineyards. Even his value-driven baseline bottling is bona fide old-vine Zinfandel. The age of the vines shows in the intense complexity of this excellent full-bodied red.

This mouth-coating Zinfandel offers flavors of toasted caramel and dark berries. Soft tannins and a lasting vanilla finish make the Ancient Vine Zin dangerously easy to drink.

The Ancient Vines Zinfandel offers flavors of dark berries and toasted caramel and a long finish. Concentrated fruit and soft tannins make this vintage a mouth-coating sensation.
