Clay Station – Old Vine Zinfandel
I tried this red wine a few weeks back and I must say it went down a treat. Clay Station Old Vine Zinfandel is produced in Lodi California. It is produced solely from the Zinfandel grape variety (also known as Primitivo in Italy).
A deep rich colour opens up to aromas of dark fruits. Flavours of blackberries, plums and dark cherry are all very present. It rounds off with a lingering spicy finish.
This is a great wine to pair with steak, spicy meat dishes and even dark chocolate.
Clay Station Old Vine Zinfandel is 14.5% but you would expect that kind of alcohol content from a Zinfandel. A 750ml bottle will cost around €20.
