Mission Briefing

Codename:

Better with age

Today’s Jessie’s Grove 2011 Westwind Old Vine Zinfandel is mouthwateringly delicious, and one we can’t wait to present to our Operatives. Zin lovers, buckle up - this wine will blow you away!

Today’s wine comes from a small, boutique winery located in Lodi, California. The winemaker used only the best fruit from their 138 year old vines, and that choice clearly shows through in this Zin. Lacking the usual dustiness for which Lodi Zins are sometimes known, this wine is instead loaded with dark fruit and subtle spice. This wine is lush and expressive, and the longer you spend with it, the more you’ll enjoy its complex layers of flavor.

We would recommend this wine at any price, but at over 25% off, this is one you must stock up on!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep purple red in the heart of the glass, with a slightly lighter red ring at the very edge.

Smell:

Lush aromas of fruit, cola, and sweet earth, with strawberry, raspberry, sweet tobacco leaf, cherry cola, dark baking spice, and a touch of an herbal undertone.

Taste:

Juicy and packed with flavor, with fresh fruit notes of red cherry and strawberry mingling with candied cherry, sweet earth, berry bramble, white pepper, sandalwood, and a touch of rosemary.

Finish:

Mouthwateringly delicious, the finish is well structured, with a lovely grip from velvety tannins. At the very end, a touch of subtle smokiness remains on the edge of the tongue.

Pairing:

A perfectly grilled burger, served with sun dried tomato pesto, mozzarella, fresh arugula, and a buttered brioche bun.
