Cline Zinfandel 2009 (an over the hill wine) review by (PB)

Always a well rounded Zin at the $10 price point, this one is basically over the hill. Slight bricking at the rim, with pruney aromas--classic of an over aged red--
Palate--Raisins/prunes, with hints of blackberry remnants.

I bothered to blog this when I would otherwise write it off as a wine that is gone as it might be helpful when you also get a wine that is beyond is peak.

Cline typically makes solid Zins so look for a younger one and raise a glass!
