PICK OF THE WEEK
So what exactly are ancient vines anyways? According to the winemaker Cline Cellars they are vines on their estate that are between 80-100 years old.
92% of this blend is sourced from grapes from these vines. The general belief is that older vines, when properly handled will produce a better wine.
Clean, minimalistic. Doesn’t exactly scream “buy me!” There’s also a cool little recipe flip on the back for a PF Chang Ginger Plum Zin sauce.
Cherry, vanilla and strawberry on the nose.
Full bodied, elegant and smooth with a nice long finish.
I’ve seen this wine retail for up to $16. At around $13 here in Miami, you can’t go wrong.
Roasted Meats, light tomato sauced based dishes.

Tremendous value and quality. Pick one up today, you will enjoy it!
