Three Wine Company Old Vines Zinfandel 2015 | Spectacular, Silken red
Three Wine Company Old Vines Zinfandel 2015 presents a brilliant deep purple in color. Bright, fresh blackberry aromatics give way to violet, graphite, and hints of cedar on the nose. While massively concentrated across the palate. Yet this red’s silken texture is built around a core of ripe, red and black fruit. Which then pivots into a finish driven by chewy tannins, clove, and dried spices.
Three Wine Company | It’s the Vines
What makes Three Wine Company Old Vines Zinfandel 2015 so special? Simple: the vines. These are grapevines rooted in Delhi sandy soils, planted in an America that hadn’t heard of Television, by people who wouldn’t live to see Ford’s invention of the Model T. And they have lasted—generation after generation, and today, continue to seek out tiny berries that translate to supreme concentration in the glass, balanced by Matt’s deft touch imparting elegance and balance.
These same vines have attracted Turley, Ridge, and Bedrock. But Matt Cline’s Three Wine Company Old Vines Zinfandel 2015 packs California’s most exclusive Zinfandel fruit from Contra Costa County into the bargain bottle that bests them all
Winemaker Matt Cline
Matt Cline’s Three Wine Company is no newcomer at Wine Access. In fact, this spectacular, silken red is the most successful under-$20 Zinfandel in our history. Vintage after vintage, it sells out and garners a bevy of 4- and 5-star raves. Positively youthful, bright primary fruit flavors dance across the spectrum from plum to raspberry, blackberry, and ripe cherry. It’s a bottle for which Matt should be charging $40. But offers to his mailing list for just $22. Yet we offer it for just $17.99.
A California native, winemaker Matt Cline knew he’d stepped onto vineyard gold when he first began cultivating the ancient vines that pepper Contra Costa County. Standing amidst vines whose trunks reach skyward from soils that look more like beach sand than fertile earth, curving around themselves in shapes that defy trellising, irrigation, and modern viticulture as we know it, you feel like you’re standing in a window to the past.
