Three Wine Company, Old Vines Field Blend, Contra Costa County $21

Cheese Beef Pork Spicy
Zinfandel (Primitivo), Petite Sirah, Alicante Bouschet, Mataro, Carignan

Hearty blackberries and tart boysenberries, a whiff of pine.

Deep and dark. Inky and stew-like. This is a winter wine. Resinous pine keeps it aloft, the ripeness of the fruit feels opulent and decadent. Oak rounds things out a bit too. This wine has curves.

Matt Cline (Cline Cellars) left the family biz to make wine with more dirt, microclimate, and sustainability. A real champion of old vine California Zinfandel in the tradition of Ridge or Turley.
