It is a clear, medium(+) intensity ruby colored wine that displays legs. It has a clean, developing nose of medium intensity displaying aromas of plum and red currant. It is a dry wine with medium acidity, medium tannin, high alcohol and medium body. It has medium intensity flavors of red currant, plum and vanilla with a medium length finish. It is an acceptable mid-priced wine that is ready to drink now but will not improve with time in the bottle.

Tasting. Not able to get past overwhelming taste and nose of alcohol. Possibly our bottle has turned or we just cellared past its peak (my husband is finishing his so could just be my problem).

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. This wine was aged in American oak for 15 months.

The grapes for our Klinker Brick Old Vine Zinfandel come from several different vineyards within the Lodi Appellation, depending upon the highest quality of fruit produced each year, and has included several vineyards in the Mokelumne and in the Clements Hills region.These vineyards are generally head-trained and dry farmed, yielding an average of 2.0 to 3.5 ton per acre. Some of the oldest vineyards have yields as small as .25 ton per acre. While there are significant limitations in the quantity of grapes produced, the quality of fruit is exceptional.

This wine offers aromas of black cherries and fresh strawberries and toasty oak. On the palate, there are layers of dark fruit intermingled with sweet vanilla and spice. This wine has an incredibly smooth and long, lingering finish.

Klinker Brick Old Vine Zinfandel Lodi 2008 750ML


External Review

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.

Winemaker Notes - The 2008 vintage produced lower yields than the previous vintage resulting in wines with deep color and rich, explosive fruit. This wine offers aromas of black cherries and fresh strawberries and toasty oak. On the palate, there are layers of dark fruit intermingled with sweet vanilla and spice. This wine has an incredibly smooth and long, lingering finish. Our winemaker believes that it is the best Klinker Brick Old Vine Zinfandel that we have produced to date.
