An elegant entry of briary red raspberry and dark fruits with a pleasing hint of cinnamon spice. Old Vine Zinfandel is all about mouthfeel, and this wine has a luscious midpalate richness, integrated tannins, mouthwatering acidity and a long finish.
Food Pairing Notes
Suggested food pairings for this wine include NY Steak or other grilled meats, mashed potatoes and roasted seasonal veggies. Also pairs with tomato-based pastas enhanced with meats or spices such as Strozzapreti with cauliflower and olives in garlic and chili spiked tomato sugo.
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.
