2019 ZinFest Blind Tasting

How Lodi Zinfandels compare to some of California's finest

Alquimista Cellars 2017 Ancient Lodi Zinfandel Surprises and Stands Out Even For Lodi Panelists

Greg and Mara La Follette

Learn how our Jessie’s Grove 2017 Ancient Vine Zinfandel recently matched up against Lodi’s finest Zins and those from some of the most prestigious vineyards throughout California. If you have already experienced our ancient vine Zinfandel, you probably won’t be surprised.

“This wine was a complete outlier that defied all expectations” Steve Eliot (one L and one T) Editor and Publisher Connoisseurs’ Guide to California Wines

“One of my highlights because of its light color and Pinot noir-like bold cherry aromas and flavors” Panelist and journalist Bob Highfill

“One of my favorites. The fruit reminded me of a cherry candy with a good balance of acid/sweetness that lingered on the finish” Panelist Natale Gagliardo, export winemaker, Ironstone Vineyards

“Pinot noir-like in its delicacy with a long, slightly dry finish,” Panelist David Natale, enologist Robert Bale Vineyards

“The most ‘un-Zinfandel-like’ wine of the tasting; yet the luscious berry sensations, rounded tannin, moderate acidity on the palate made it very ‘Zinfandel,’ “ notes from a tasting panel consensus
