Vineyard Notes:

This luscious Zinfandel comes from our prized Big Break, Live Oak and Bridgehead vineyards located in Oakley. All within a two mile radius of one another, these vineyards are planted in deep sand soil, are dry-farmed and head-pruned, and employ farming practices that were originally used by the Italian and Portuguese immigrants that inhabited the area before the turn of the century.

Production Notes:

Grapes were harvested at natural high sugar levels and almost entirely de-stemmed and lightly crushed, with a large proportion of whole berries remaining in the must. Fermentation occurred at moderate temperatures in stainless steel tanks, using yeast that was selected for its tolerance of higher alcohol that these grapes produce. After eight days of gentle “pump-overs” and near dryness, the wine was pressed from its skins and put down to French oak for 14 months.

Winemaker Notes:

The Heritage Zinfandel is big and flavorful, with notes of chocolate, mint, sweet berries, spice and coffee - a classic example of the big-boned Zinfandels for which Cline Cellars has become known. The wine’s acidity and tannins are firm, but balanced, creating a luscious wine.

Food Pairing:

Try this wine with grilled steak, duck or a spicy pasta dish. Check out the recipes at www.clinecellars.com/haveittonight.
