Tasting Notes

The unique Jessup Cellar’s 2020 Pacini Zinfandel was produced entirely from the grapes of 133-year-old “ancient” vines. The wine is brimming with nuances of ripe cranberry, pomegranate, cherry cola, white pepper, and vanilla.

The wine offers soft tannins with a nice, long finish.

Buyers may choose to decant and serve immediately or choose to age this wine further for up to nine years.

Historic Pacini Vineyards

To source grapes for this outstanding Zinfandel, the winemakers at Jessup Cellars, an award-winning boutique Napa Valley winery, traveled to Mendocino County’s Talmadge Bench. Here the Pacini Vineyards staff manages their historic vineyard, where grapes are organically produced from veteran vines that were initially planted in the late 1800s.

Pacini Vineyards is a member of the Historic Vineyards Society that recognizes and hopes to preserve vineyards planted at least fifty years ago.
