Cline 2006 California Zinfandel Ancient Vines

Dark red/purple color.

Prominent oak smell atop plum/black cherry.

Tart dark stone fruit with no shortage of oak.

The next day the fruit remains present if muffled by wood and plenty of it.

Overall, a fun fruity wine with deep flavor, $15.99 seems about right, but I probably won't repeat this. I'm a little leery of a claim like "Ancient Vines" from a bottle without a more precise American Viticultural Area labeling, but the wine is quite nice.
