Klinker Brick's "Old Vine" Zin comes from vines that average 85 years of age grown near the Mokelumne River in Lodi. This is a sweet, jammy wine reminscent of blackberry pie, black bepper and cigar box on the nose and palate. A concentrated vintage that's juicy and sweet, this calls for a grassfed burger with onion and tomato confit and tangy blue cheese.
Bright, fruit forward elements of wild strawberry and Satsuma plum lead to flavors of black cherry and vanilla with slight hints of cedar. A well structured effort that offers supple tannins and a long and smooth finish.
deep color, best nose in Lodi, warm spices and hints of leather, powerful fruit. - it's a zin !
Grapes harvested from vines that are 85 years old on average were aged in American oak for 14 months.
