Klinker Brick 2005 Old Vine Zinfandel

Klinker Brick Old Vine Zinfandel
That's a might fine wine. Oak on the nose, oak lingering on the long finish, along with pepper/spice. This finish is worth waiting for with every sip...drink her slooooow. Cherry, plum and subtle strawberry help this full-bodied zin bring home a big mouthful of goodness. The spicy finish helps balance out that big fruit flavor at the start.

A great wine, but due to the high $17 price point at Sam's Wine, I'm giving it a strong 7. Remember, my goal is to find the best "cheap" wines, under $15. If it was $5 bucks less, you'd be drinking an 8.5. That said, fine work from Klinker Brick Winery in Lodi, CA.
