Cline Zinfandel "California" 2007 wine review by (PB)
One of my perennial favorites, this value Zin runs around $8.50 a bottle and is a decent example of the grape even at this lower echelon production wine. It is opaqueish red with wild, brambly Zin aromas of rustic berries, a touch of ripe raspberry, and spice.
Palate--nice textured wine with solid red berry fruit with a touch of chocolate and wildness. It finishes with lingering berry flavors even if a little coarse. Raise a glass at this price and then compare it with a Zin of around $25 to grow your Zinfandel knowledge!
