Seghesio Family Vineyards

2017 Old Vine Zinfandel
2017 Old Vine Zinfandel

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.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
On the nose, notes of cherry, cedar and cigar box linger with aromas of fresh licorice. Deftly structured on the palate with well-integrated tannins, fresh notes of pomegranate and red currants, a velvety mouthfeel and luscious finish, this is a wine that is built to age.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair with dishes such as beef braciole that feature richly flavored red sauces or a vegetarian sugo over pasta.

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.
