2019 Cline Family Cellars Ancient Vines Zinfandel
Zinfandel is a favorite red varietal of ours, especially as we head into colder weather for fall and winter. We find that it generally pairs very well with stews, chili and red meat. The 2019 Cline Family Cellars Ancient Vines Zinfandel is a fine example a wine that can be enjoyed over a great conversation or a nice dinner. We actually drank this solo and then again with meatloaf and it was a hit! The vines that create the fruit for this wine are over 100 years old out of Contra Costa County, creating a wine that is both reliable and tasty. Medium red in color, dominating aromas of cooked strawberries and dried spices fill the glass. The same follows through with the flavors, adding in toasted flat bread with vanilla bean and plum. We think this is drinking very well right now but may be even a little bit better in another 12 - 18 months.
