A blast of ripe fruit and delightful spice and pepper notes, characteristic of old vine zin. It's a burly wine, not for everyone, but if you like a good strong zin, pop this one open and enjoy!

floral nose, fig, cola and pepperwith nice acid, and a medium weight, not a heavy blockbuster zin at all. somewhat oaky finish. good for food and very nice, although maybe not quite up to other wines in this price range, imo.

Extremely complex; best zin I've had in quite a while. Lots of spice, but very balanced. Quite a bargain.

Much more subtle than the standard klinker zin. Not -as- rich, but definitely still a good, strong taste.

This hearty, full-bodied red comes from Zinfandel vines that are well over 50 years old. Aromas of dark fruit contrast with fresh herbal notes; this also shows intense concentration, packed with berry flavors set off by spicy oak.

Wine Tasting NotesThis vintage of Klinker Brick Old Vine Zinfandel may be the very best we have produced to date with full, juicy flavors of cherries and plums coupled with the perfect balance of oak and spice. There is a nuance of mint and clove on the nose and a lingering, elegant finish.

A big, jammy Lodi Zinfandel.


External Review

The 2006 vintage of Klinker Brick Old Vine Zinfandel is produced from an amalgam of 14 different vineyard blocks, ranging in age from 37 to 112 years old. This vintage saw lower yields than 2005 (averaging less than 3 tons per acre), producing a wine that is both complex and bold. Showing typical Klinker Brick cherry/berry/plum fruit components with aromatic spices on the nose, this wine is incredibly well balanced with a silky smooth texture and a long lingering finish.

Produced in the Lodi region of California, this Zinfandel is rich, intense and has a real kick to it with a 15.8% alcohol content! With an average age of the vines at 85 years, the wine has balance and depth, with layers of ripe blackberries and raspberries and a nice, peppery note. This would be perfect to serve with a spicy Shrimp Diablo or barbecued ribs.

Big and ripe, with a lingering sweetness, but remains appealing for its berry pie aromas and supple, spicy cherry and blackberry flavors. Drink now.
