2015 Old Vine Zinfandel
2015 Old Vine Zinfandel
93pts -  Wine Spectator

Our Old Vine Zinfandel blends vineyards planted on the Dry Creek bench and the cooler southwest Alexander Valley. Although “old vine” is often loosely interpreted in the wine industry, our benchmark is minimum 50 years. However, the average age of our vines is approximately 70 years old. True old vine Zinfandel is distinguished by head-trained vines with thick, gnarled trunks and is planted with ancient clones dating back to the turn of the century.

Tasting Notes
Deeply perfumed aromas of raspberry and old vine Zin’s intrinsic briary spiciness. Layered bright fruit flavors reminiscent of a cherry pie with graham cracker crust and baking spice undertones. Low yields in the vineyard preserved the vibrant natural acidity and balanced tannins, leading into a long, persistent finish.

Sonoma County Vineyards

This wine comes from the old head-pruned vineyards in Alexander and Dry Creek valleys farmed by the multi-generational Passalacqua and Saini families for Seghesio. The older vines devigorized root system produces less, yet more intense, fruit highlighting Zinfandel's briary spice characteristic.
