Cline Ancient Vines Zinfandel shows wonderful, fat strawberry, with coffee and chocolate characters. Aging in new and used wood has lent this wine a subtle vanilla quality that nicely complements the explosive fruit notes.
Wine Advocate 87 points - The 2013 Zinfandel Ancient Vines (nearly 59,000 cases produced) is 100% Zinfandel aged seven months in one-third new American oak. Peppery and spicy, with notes of roasted herbs, black cherries and blackberries, this medium-bodied, elegant, pure 2013 should drink well for 1-2 years. (Nov 2014)
