Klinker Brick Old Ghost Old Vine Lodi Zinfandel 2013

$37

Old Ghost represents the very best lots of Old Vine Zinfandel that Klinker-Brick Winery produces. This small-production Zin sells out quickly soon after each release. Try it while its still available! For the past three vintages, Old Ghost has come from 90 plus-year-old vineyard blocks that typically produce tiny yields that are less than one ton per acre. Very keenly defined berry-like fruit gives great direction to the rich, sweetly oaked aromas of this tantalizing Zinfandel, and, even if it is biased to the ripeness of its provenance on the palate, it has admirable volume and depth. A streak of firming tannins provides a nice bit of grip and ensures several years of growth.

Jace Frenzy

Maple, bacon fat, vanilla, cedar, black rasperry, chocolate, raisins and spice on the nose. Rich and full bodied, the palate is dense with notes of dried dark fruits, chocolate, rosemary, black cherry, cola and a hint of strawberrry. Silky mouthfeel with structured tannins. The lingering finish is a nice balance of sweet and savory with a tobacco and wood backdrop. Definitely hits hard at 16%.

Rich and dense with loads of anise and tar. A real teeth stainer.

Very nice Zin! We had it with Italian pasta with sausage in red sauce and it paired very well.
