Heritage Zinfandel is big and flavorful, with notes of chocolate, sweet berries, spice and coffee. It’s another big-boned Zinfandel Cline Cellars is known for. The wine’s acidity and tannins are firm, but balanced, creating a luscious wine.
The prized 100-year-old Big Break, Live Oak and Bridgehead vineyards in Oakley, planted in deep, sandy soil, dry-farmed and head-pruned, as they were 100 years ago.
Harvested at natural high sugar levels, lightly crushed, stored at moderate temperatures, pressed from the skin and barreled for 12 months in French oak.
