Editorial Reviews for Ancient Peaks Zinfandel Paso Robles
A bit high-toned on the nose with spicy, stemmy, bramble-driven red fruit. Round in the mouth, with soft tannins and meaty orchard fruit-framed black plummy fruit that shows a nice little herbal edge and turns a little chocolaty on the finish. 86 points
This smells a bit unusual, with candied Rainier cherry notes combined with subtle floral tones, honeycomb, citrus notes and a lashing of oak. There is a slightly scorched quality to the nose but in a good way. With air this falls into a more typical cherry/berry/vanilla groove but it remains notably fresh and complex. In the mouth this is a bit more straightforward, packed with lightly creamy, vanilla-stained cherry pie filling fruit. It's actually got lovely tannins and great acidity, giving this a brightness and freshness in the mouth. It's big but well balanced and a touch rustic but not rough. An archetype party wine and really solid Zin. 89pts
External Reviews for Ancient Peaks Zinfandel Paso Robles
The raspberry impression continues on the palate along with jammy flavors of red cherry and boysenberry. Juicy acidity lingers on a bright, spicy finish.
Tasting Notes - The 2008 Zinfandel begins with intense aromas of black fruits with enticing accents of anise and vanilla. The palate is bright and juicy, unfolding with flavors of black cherry, raspberry and plum. A dash of black pepper accompanies fresh acidity on a long, structured finish.
"The 2011 Zinfandel offers vibrant aromas of crushed raspberry and blueberry with a dash of sweet oak. Bright, juicy flavors of raspberry, boysenberry and black cherry anticipate notes of cola and spice. A smoky vanilla note joins luscious acidity on a rich, jammy finish." -Winery
