Klinker Brick 2011 Old Ghost Old Vine Zinfandel
Great dark berry aromas but you really have to dig into this one to really experience them. They aren’t bold. Go on… get in there. Don’t worry about a little juice on your nose.
Sip this juice slow because its smooth. It will run over your the mid-palate, but quick to give you a delightful pop of sour berry fruit on the rear. Great long finish with a flash of spice as it goes. Quite the passive-aggressive rascal this one is.

Winemaker’s Notes: “The 2011 Old Ghost displays a deep garnet color with rich aromas of brambleberry, exotic spice, botanical garden notes and cedar shavings. Yields were a bit lower in 2011, resulting in rich concentration of color and flavor. This wine has legs! Delicious, dark fruits fill the palate and finish with a long, silky texture. Enjoy with grilled meats, wild mushroom risotto or aged gouda.”
