Seghesio Family Vineyards

2016 David’s Heritage Red
2016 David’s Heritage Red

David’s Heritage Red was born as an offspring to Marian’s Reserve, which longtime Seghesio fans know as an elegant red blend honoring Fay Marian, wife to third generation winemaker Ed Seghesio. This new blend honors the youngest of their children, David Seghesio, who joined the family business in 1983 as a master technician. In the realm of mechanics he was a Renaissance man, displaying skills from engineering to restoration that always left us in awe. David passed away in 2017 and with this wine we honor the legacy of his ambition and dauntless ingenuity.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This wine bursts with cassis, currants, black licorice and baking spices. The structure from the Petite Sirah is lifted by the red fruit and spice components from the Grenache and Syrah, respectively, and the underlying oak backbone tempers the acidity for a robust and eminently enjoyable red blend. Pairs well with braised short ribs, Osso Buco, oxtail papardelle, grilled sausages, aged crumbly blue cheese, hard cheddar and aged goat cheese such as Midnight Moon.

David’s Heritage represents a blend of 55% Petite Sirah, 35% Syrah, and 10% Grenache grapes that are sourced completely from vineyards in Dry Creek Valley. The Syrah and Grenache come from Saini vineyards on the east bench land. The old vine Grenache was originally planted in 1942. The Petite Sirah is sourced from Perotti vineyards on in the northwest corner of the valley.
