Jelly Jar Zinfandel Lake County Old Vine Nova Vineyard 2007

Member Review by Shr:

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!

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.

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.
