Alquimista Cellars 'Jessie's Grove' Old Vine Zinfandel 2016

Lodi, San Joaquin County, California

Alquimista is an artisanal winery from self-proclaimed “Pinot Disciple” Greg La Follette and Patrick Dillon that aims to create vibrant, balanced Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in California’s cool climate. Together they have developed some of the most renowned growing sites in Sonoma and have put into place meticulous winemaking techniques that highlight the unique character and intense expression of the region.

Tasting Notes:

Delicate, yet spicy aromas come forth from a mélange of Zinfandel, Carignan, Flame Tokay, Black Prince, Malvasia Bianca, and Mission grapes. Pinot-like smoothness is achieved from partial whole-cluster fermentation, defining the flavors of plum, fruit compote, and pumpkin spice. Just enough spice is carried to remind that this is predominantly Zinfandel.

Pair it With:

The hearty and bold flavors found in Zinfandel make it a great companion for rich and flavorful BBQ. Try ribs, grilled chicken, roast lamb, pulled pork, pork chops, game meats and burgers. Zinfandel also pairs beautifully with Moroccan and Turkish spices that embellish its cinnamon-spice subtleties.

Zinfandel, Carignan, Mission, Black Prince & Flame Tokay.
