Only Klinker Brick Zinfandel aged in French oak, Spicy, vanilla tinged blueberry fruit on the nose picks up plenty of powdered sugar berry aromas, lots of smoke, lots of nutty oak influence. There’s a lot going on here. Silky, deep and vinous in the mouth, this is a bit wiry on the palate with sour red cherry fruit early on the palate. It’s still a bit oaky but shows well integrated ginger and tobacco accents balanced by jammy blackberry and blueberry flavors. Supple, and with a fairly long finish, this remains a little jammy but is rather elegant when compared to the rest of the line-up here. Fine grained tannins extend across the backend and clip the finish, which also shows some heat. 88pts

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).

Tasted at the 2010 Zap wine festival and I only captured the numeric rating. I’ll have to taste again to get more detailed notes.

The 2011 Old Ghost displays a deep garnet color with rich aromas of brambleberry, exotic spice, botanical garden notes and cedar shavings. Yields were a bit lower in 2011, resulting in rich concentration of color and flavor. This wine has legs! Deli cious, dark fruits fill the palate and finish with a long, silky texture. Enjoy with grilled meats, wild mushroom risotto or aged gouda. - WineryCooperage: 40% French, 60% American, aged 18 monthsAlcohol: 15.9%Residual Sugar: .33PH: 3.71TA: .66

Old Ghost Zinfandel is an elegant ghost, indeed. With aromas of mocha, brambleberry and exotic spice, this full-bodied wine displays layers of dark fruit on the palate, finishing with a rich, velvet texture.

A Zinfandel wine from California in USA. 2010 Klinker Brick Winery Old Ghost 750ml

Produced from a 100-year old vineyard, the 2010 vintage of Old Ghost is an exceptional wine that exudes explosive brambleberry flavors balanced with structure, elegance and finesse. The grapes harvested from this block are minuscule in yield and typically smaller in size, offering more "skin to flesh" resulting in higher tannins. The dense aromatics of berries and spice are coupled with the suggestion of a botanical garden, including mint, licorice, lavender and rosemary. This Old Ghost is not for the feint hearted and will command your attention. He may be the most benevolent to date... - Winery ** SOLD OUT **

Winemaker's Notes:

The wine has exotic spices of cardamom and black pepper on the nose, infused with bright, black cherry fruit. On the palate, it is rich, round and full-bodied with flavors of brambleberry and chocolate covered cherries yielding to a long and lingering finish. A blend of two old vine zinfandel vineyards, 89 and 98 years old.
