Matt Cline has gone back to his roots with Three Wine Company. Together with his wife, Erin, they focus on making wine from old vines of California's "heritage" varietals: Zinfandel, Mataro, Carignane, Alicante Bouschet and Petite Sirah. Matt believes that the dirt, the micro-climate and sustainable wine growing form the cornerstone of good winemaking and these three elements are in every bottle Three Wine Company produces. Matt focuses his energies on working with the old-vine plantings in places few growers and winemakers find interesting, mainly in the sandy soils of Contra Costa County. It is because of this dedication and diligence that Matt is able to source fruit from vines that are over 100 years old!

Three Zinfandel is a blend of 77% Zinfandel, 14% Petite Sirah, 6% Carignane, 2% Mataro, and 1% Alicante Bouschet. All the grapes in this blend come from vineyard blocks with extremely sandy-loam soils called Delhi loam. Sixty-five percent of this Zinfandel blend consists of 18 - 20 year old vines with the balance (35%) being well over 100 years old. These younger vine Zinfandel grapes show the typical raspberry to blackberry fruit so dominate in the older vines in the area, validating this Contra Costa appellation. The “field blend” contingent of this wine adds structure, color, cherry, and black fruit flavors. There is a deep concentration of ripe black cherries and spice with a minerality (earthy berry) sneaking through. The mouth-feel is rich and balanced with a lingering peppery finish. Enjoy now or age 3 to 7 years.
