Nice color but it looks like it will improve with a little age. Has a powerful aroma of dark fruit. The flavor has blackberry and a real punch of spice before the lengthy finish. This is a fine example of old vine Zinfandel, I recommend buying a few bottles. Drink a couple now and save the rest for later.

Cline Zinfandel

Name: Cline
Type: Red
Grape: Zinfandel
Origin: California – U.S.
Year: 2004
Producer: Cline Cellars
Price: $11.99

Smells like ripe cherries, but it has more of a blackberry flavor. Has a smooth flavor with a hint of spice on the medium finish. I have enjoyed the Zinfandel from Cline in the past and this one is an enjoyable wine. However, I think that I’ve developed a much better sense of how much quality I should expect at certain price points and by that measure I’m not thrilled with this one. It’s tasty but I think a bit over-priced for what it is.
