Really fruit forward Zin. Dark cherry, slight strawberry. Great structure, yet loose. Hint of spice on the finish. Well over delivers at $10.

Pours a dark red. Blueberry and baking spices on aromas. Dark cherry raspberry and a hint of vanilla flavors with a bit of dryness on the finish. Not a traditional big jammy version of Zinfandel

Medium bodied, fruit forward with plenty of cherry & dark berry, touch of vanilla, touch of spice.

A little tart for a zin, but I drank the whole bottle in one sitting...so it can't be that bad, right?

A good Zin from Sonoma, Ca. The 2012 was a bit better than this 2013. Fred Cline also owns Jaccuzzi Family Vineyards right across the street and they both have excellent wines with NO tasting FEES! Jacuzzi also has an olive oil tasting room that is fantastic. Cline & Jacuzzi became our most favorite wineries and are both organic.

Hey, I'll drink this, but that doesn't mean I like everything about it. The alcohol is too prevalent and while the jammy fruit is nice, it's one note and not at all complex. It's a big wine for the sake of being big.

Nice and fruity, this Zinfandel is a great food wine, not too jammy or sweet.

Dry, medium body, medium to high tannins, medium acidity. Strawberry jam, vanilla and spices with a tobacco finish. Not much complexity or length. Little too sweat for a Zinfandel.
