Matt Cline’s brilliant Zinfandels gained his family’s Cline Cellars fame; today he’s focused on his own boutique label, Three.
What You Need To Know
Although he makes the occasional Albariño or late-harvest Riesling, Matt Cline is chiefly obsessed with red wines. Specifically, lush, spicy and deeply fruity reds from grapes such as Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Carignane. Fortunately, Cline knows California’s cache of top vineyards for these grapes as well as (or better) than anyone, having logged thousands of miles each year for his family’s Cline Cellars. Today he puts that knowledge to use for Three, the label he and wife Erin founded in 2007. Cline sourced this Zinfandel from Contra Costa, a mostly suburban county outside San Francisco. As is traditional, Cline blended in small amounts of complementary varieties, such as spicy Petite Sirah and tannic Carignane.
