A shared dream of husband and wife team, Andy and Shannon Pestoni, Jelly Jar marks a return to early California winemaking, when Italian immigrants crafted food-friendly wines to enjoy around the family table – most often out of jelly jars. Long before Napa Valley became the wine destination we know today, these winemakers planted backyard vineyards and enlisted family members to harvest and crush grapes. As a fourth-generation winemaker, whose roots run deep in the Napa Valley, Andy inherited his ancestors’ love of wine and crafts Jelly Jar with profound understanding. He knows how to enhance the unique character of grapes from single vineyard sites he has hand-chosen. And like the wines from the turn of the century, Jelly Jar is a true family endeavor. Andy and Shannon work together in every aspect of production from start to finish. Raise a glass of Jelly Jar – a delicious, food-friendly, family-crafted wine to be shared with family and friends.

In general, I'm not a Zinfandel fan, but I tried this wine at a local wine bar during a play & pay fundraiser and found it to be quite delightful...just like the labe implies, this wine is rich with jammy fruit flavors without being sweet!

While not a true fruit bomb, this wine has a lot of dark fruit flavors, plum, black cherry and blackberry. There is enough tannin to keep for a number of years and I would expect it to improve over the next few years.

"Rating: 88/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Fairly complex and a bit out of the norm insofar as it shows a distinct overlay of smoke to its vanillin and black-berries aromas


Vintage: 2008 11/12/2010

Rating: 88/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Fairly complex and a bit out of the norm insofar as it shows a distinct overlay of smoke to its vanillin and black-berries aromas, this trim middleweight impresses for its rounded feel and fine balance, and its lingering flavors are convincingly keyed on classic varietal fruit. It can age for a bit but does not demand it, and it will make for fine drinking with sundry pork dishes in the near term.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.
