The Cline Ancient Vines Zinfandel draws primarily from the family's oldest, most historic and shyest-bearing blocks in Contra Costa County. These ancient, dry, organically farmed vineyards consistently produce fruits of stunning concentration. The 2016 Ancient Vines Zinfandel is a luxurious sipper that shows spicy, bright strawberry, with coffee and chocolate aromas. Its intriguing mouthfeel is filled with blackberry jam, floral raspberry and liquorice, along with a dusting of white pepper. Plum notes go creamy on the finish with just a dusting of heather. Lively but extremely smooth with soft tannins, this is a mouth-coating and explosively rich vintage.
