Our second vintage from the Mounts Vineyard, the 2014 Old Vine Zinfandel is a wonderful continuation of the trademark style and 2014 Mounts Vineyardquality we established with previous vintages of vineyard-designate Zinfandels. Sourced from an old-vine vineyard block on the west side of Dry Creek Valley, this wine highlights the specific characteristics of flavor and balance that define the style of wine we strive for here at David Clinton: an approachable Zinfandel with rich red fruit flavors, balanced with lively acidity and a layered, lingering finish.

The 2014 Mounts Vineyard Zinfandel shows our balanced approach to wine making with even richer fruit and flavor concentration, with vibrant aromas and fresh flavors of dried cherry, strawberry rhubarb pie, pomegranate, and dried sage, and a hint of spiciness and white pepper on the finish. A wine that is extremely satisfying to drink on its own, this wine’s well-proportioned and balanced structure also allows it to pair nicely with a broad range of food styles, including pasta dishes, grilled meats and vegetables, barbecue, and Asian cuisine.
