Three Wine Company Red Blend California Old Vines 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes on the Three Wine Company Zinfandel Old Vines California 2007 : NVWE NOTES: Richly fruity, the aromas of this well-priced and immediately appealing Zin deliver dark cherry, pomegranate syrup, blackberry, vanilla, white pepper and a bit of black tea in an engaging harmony. It is just as fruit-packed on the palate and rich in body, yet proves unexpectedly dry, as a bit of tannin and some mineral undercurrents firm up its lingering flavors of red plum, red cherry and pepper. This is a delicious and versatile dinner wine that has the spice for strongly flavored dishes and the polish for casual sipping. 2,100 cases produced.THREE WINE COMPANY ZINFANDEL OLD VINES CALIFORNIA 2007

Matt Cline was born in Inglewood, California in 1961, eighth of nine children. Matt graduated from Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks in 1979. He continued his education at the University of California at Berkeley with a degree in entomology in June, 1984. Then Matt studied enology at the University of California at Davis in 1985 and 1986. Matt's winemaking career began in 1982 helping his brother at his Oakley winery; in 1985 he began as winemaker and creative director at Cline Cellars. In addition to his position at Cline in 1986 he joined Conn Creek as the assistant winemaker which lasted through 1989. Over the course of his 16-year career at Cline, Matt was responsible for branding Cline Cellars' unique style of winemaking. Cline Cellars' wines have won countless awards including the 1998 Sonoma County Harvest Fair Sweepstakes Award for his 1996 Syrah Los Carneros, selected from among 587 wines. Cline Cellars has also had the distinction of being one of Wine & Spirits Magazine's American Wineries of the Year in both 1999 and 2001. In 2001, Matt started Trinitas Cellars where he concentrated on producing premium, old-vine Zinfandel, Mataro, and Petite Sirah. After building sales to over 9,000 cases, Matt and his wife Erin sold the brand at the end of 2006. Following the sale of Trinitas Cellars, Matt launched S3x (S three times - small, sweet, sips) a botrytis late harvest wine from the Russian River Valley. At the 2008 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition the 2006 S3x Late Harvest Riesling won a Sweepstakes Award. The wine was amongst 4,235 wines from over 1,500 wineries across the U.S.A. Along with the S3x brand, Matt will continue to produce Zinfandel, Mataro and Petite Sirah from Contra Costa and Russian River Valley. All of these wines will be produced under the three label, which will be officially released in 2008. When Matt is not racking and perfecting his winemaking techniques, he enjoys fly fishing and gardening as well as relaxing at home in Sonoma with his wife, Erin and their three children. Read less

Absolutely intoxicating nose of vanilla and violet. couldn't get my nose out of my glass all night! This blend of Zinfandel, Mourvedre and Carignane comes from vineyards with an average age of over 90 years. Also added a splash of Petit Sirah which amps up the color. Ripe, rich, and full-bodied, this is a silky, drinkable wine that would pair well with any sort of meat, and even cheese. Definitely a BBQ/grilling wine for summer.
