Cline Ancient Vines Zinfandel 2016
Wine Spectator Top 100: 2018, Rank: 40
The 2016 Ancient Vines Zinfandel shows spicy, bright strawberry, with coffee and chocolate characters. Ripe fruit and soft tannins make this a mouth-coating rich vintage. Aging on new and used oak has lent this wine a subtle vanilla quality that nicely complements the explosive fruit notes. Enjoy now or cellar for 5 to 7 years.

Wine EnthusiastVery ripe, almost sweet fruit flavors pour forth from this full-bodied wine, accented by baking spices like vanilla and cinnamon. It feels very smooth and soft in texture.
