Ancient Peaks Zinfandel 2020
|Region||California, Central Coast, Paso Robles|
The 2020 Zinfandel makes an immediate statement with bright, jammy aromas of raspberry, cinnamon spice and vanilla cream. Luscious, rounded flavors of red cherry, raspberry and blackberry unfold across a beautifully weighted mouthfeel, all underpinned by deeper hints of roast coffee and black pepper. Smooth, juicy acidity brings impressive balance to a uniquely elegant finish. Pairs well with grilled lamb chops, vegetarian flatbread, Italian sausage, and black pepper and parmesan spaghetti.
Rugged aromas of barbecued berry, roasted fennel bulb and light soil show on the nose of this bottling. There's a licorice kick to the palate, where soft herbal flavors enliven the wild berry flavors.
