Cline Cellars Zinfandel Big Break

Much in the same way as the famed Pinot Noirs of Burgundy, certain old-vine Zinfandel vineyards have shown such unique and individual character that they could be considered California`s true Grand Crus. The Big Break vineyard definitely is one such vineyard site. Always one of our most robust wines, the 2000 in particular oozes with power, revealing a dark wild berry, exotic spice, chocolate and ripe peach character. A distinct dusty berry character (reminiscent of picking wild black berries in the hot summer sun), what we affectionately describe as our "Oakley terroir," effuses predominately from this wine. This "Big Break" Zinfandel, which can be enjoyed young, should also benefit from 5 to 7 years of cellaring.
