Wine Description

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

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.

    Very Nice Dark purple package. This had Cedar, dark black berries, and some vanila extract and white pepper action. Nose is actually lighter and more floral than the jammy berry bite this offers. Actually a nice table Zin to have around the house. At this price point, more than welcome in our house.
