(From 2008 Vintage) Ripe fruit and soft tannins make this mouthcoating rich vintage a nice complement to pasta dishes with a light tomato sauce or grilled meats.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2008 Vintage) The 2008 Ancient Vines Zinfandel shows wonderful dusty raspberry, blackberry, white pepper and spice, with coffee and chocolate characters. Ripe fruit and soft tannins make this a mouth-coating rich vintage. Aging in new and used wood has lent this wine a subtle vanilla quality that nicely complements the explosive fruit notes.

Expert Reviews
  • Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
    Ripeness and ripeness again is the dominant theme of this big-bodied wine, and, if not prohibitively hot, it is neither especially fruity. It will appeal almost exclusively to unrepentant fans of its fat and glyceriny style.
