Three Wine Co. Zinfandel 2019, Contra Costa County, California
Dive into luscious layers of ripe and jammy red berry fruit with no hard edges. This Zin is packed with crushed boysenberries, dark plum, and black cherry liqueur. Just enough acidity adds a vibrant lift. As winemaker for his brother’s winery, Cline Cellars, Matt Cline became known as one of California’s top Zinfandel experts. Now at his own winery, Three Wine Company, Matt makes tiny amounts of fantastic Zins from historic Zinfandel Vineyards. Three Zinfandel is sourced from ancient vines in Contra Costa County. It is a blend of 75% Zinfandel, 12% Petite Sirah, 9% Carignane, and 4% Alicante Bouschet. All the grapes in this blend come from vineyard blocks with extremely sandy loam soils. This is a well-balanced Zin that won’t overpower your Thanksgiving meal. It will also accompany burgers and barbecue nicely, or simply sip it with your feet up.
