The Jelly Jar 2014 Old-Vine Zinfandel Lake County is a fantastic value in tasty California Zin - a new discovery for us, this small-production Zin has quickly become our favorite "house wine!" Andy and Shannon Pestoni's wine brand, Jelly Jar, gets back to the idea that great wine wasn't always served in fancy crystal glasses (or made in posh winegrowing communities). Dry-farmed, head-trained, volcanic, single-vineyard wines from Lake County are what they're about. The Nova Vineyard Zin captures these ideals into a delicious wine with a vibrant perfume of plum, berries and mocha tones with hints of oak that explode on the palate. Flavors of blackberry jam, cinnamon and black pepper mean a wine full of character that's rich and robust with supple tannins and a long, spicy finish.
