Cline Zinfandel 2013

As you may have noted, I’ve been on a bit of a Zinfandel bender of late.  So without further ado ….

Winemaker:  Cline
Wine:  California Classics Lodi Zinfandel
Vintage: 2013
Varietal:  Zinfandel
Appellation: Lodi, CA
Price: $8.49 at Trader Joe’s

Notes: A very dark red, this Cline Zin smelled of berries, moss and rubber.  It had good acidity, heft on the palate was on the light side of medium, and alcohol was at 14%.  Flavor-wise, I tasted blackberry, currant, oak, some eucalyptus and a touch of pepper.  Not bad at all!
