Ripe fruit and soft tannins make this mouthcoating rich vintage a nice complement to pasta dishes with a light tomato sauce or grilled meats.
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.
con la voluptuosidad tipica de zinfandel pero solo parte de su caracter. acabado final algo aspero. poco refinado. curioso pero tampoco para repetir
One of my favorite wines
smooth, fruit forward, little spice
smooth with a peppery finish
great with almost anything.
very fruity, no tannins
Enjoyed at True Bistro
light. easy going.
