100-year-old vines add complexity to Klinker Brick Old Vine Zinfandel
Vines planted as long ago as 1900 inject power and complexity into the 2015 Klinker Brick Old Vine Zinfandel, the most American of West Coast reds. While cabernet is too tannic and pinot noir is too soft to accompany football-fueled fare, this Goldilocks red is just right. Soft tannins and berry fruit richness stimulate your senses and pair well with smoky barbecue or pizza.
$20. Available at The Vino Gallery, thevinogallery.com
