Jelly Jar Old Vine Zinfandel "Nova Vineyard" 2009 review by (PB)
Bright super ruby hue with bright red creamy berry aromas of candied red fruit with touch of cinnamon.
Palate--Bursting wondrous pure, intense red berries with Zin backbone, almost lady- like structure and refined tannins.
This is one of the cleanest, purest Zinfandels I have had and I have had a bunch. I am a Zinfandel freak. This is uncomplicated, straightforward, finessed, delicious Zinfandel and a nice food wine to boot. My wife bought it for me as a gift. It was $22 which is more than I normally pay for my wine, but what a nice treat. Raise a glass to the only truly American grape!
