The Old Ghost represents the best Zinfandel that Klinker Brick produces each year. Brambleberry fruit aromas intermingled with anise, clove and exotic spice, echo previous vintages. Smaller berries harvested from this vineyard block tend to offer more “skin to flesh,” providing a greater level of smooth yet firm tannin and structure to this wine.
Delta breezes and the associated fog allow the winemaker to retain above average acidity for the region, providing notes of bright cherry and raspberry. Barrel fermentation brings additional structure to this thin skin varietal. The extremely low yields of century-old vineyards bring forth notes of sweet tobacco and cocoa. The result is a balanced and complex Zinfandel perfect for both Summer barbeques and Fall fire pits.
