Description: The 2005 vintage was exceptionally generous in many ways. The yields were up a bit from 2004 but more importantly, the weather was nearly perfect for growing exceptional fruit, extending the “hang-time” for the grapes to remain on the vine. Some of our vineyard blocks were harvested during the latter part of October and the quality of the fruit produced was superb, rich in color and flavor profiles. In 2005, we harvested grapes from eleven different vineyard blocks, ranging in age from 35 to 110 years old. Yields were close to three tons per acre with the exception some of the very old vineyards whose miserly yields was less than one ton per acre. Our Klinker Brick 2005 Old Vine Zinfandel may be the very best we have produced to date with full, juicy flavors of cherries and plums coupled with the perfect balance of oak and spice. There is a nuance of mint and clove on the nose and a lingering, elegant finish. This wine was aged in American oak for 15 months
