Much better are the 2011 and 2010 Ancient Vines Zinfandels. This wine spends about eight months in American oak, and both vintages look very good. They are also quite similar in style. Medium-bodied, with good acid, sweet berry fruit, some pepper, incense and spice, the 2011 seems just a tad fresher.

Medium red. Musky berries, roast coffee and a whiff of maple syrup on the nose. Creamy-sweet in an old-vines way, showing good breadth to its dark berry, chocolate and coffee flavors. Finishes with smooth tannins and a peppery nuance. Very ripe zinfandel but could use more primary fruit and lift.

Zesty and a bit rustic, with dried and baked cherry notes backed with anise and pepper. Tannins firm the finish. Drink now through 2015.

The soft, easygoing, straightforward, round 2009 Zinfandel Ancient Vine (50,000 cases produced), while not terribly complex, is satisfying in a monolithic style.
