I purchased this wine for a wine chat tasting on twitter a while back.  I was looking for the Cline Cashmere but the wine store I was in didn’t have it so I settled on the 2009 Ancient Vines Zinfandel. I shouldn’t say settled, because it was pretty good and a great price.

Opening the bottle the aromas of coffee, vanilla and strawberry jam. Very nice aromas.  The palate was filled with red fruit and bursting with stawberries.  There were hints of coffee and a smooth finish.

As my husband said “This wine is a keeper for under $20.”  I purchased the wine for $14.99.
