Winemaker's Notes

Seghesio Old Vine Zinfandel perfectly embodies their family's goal of "sharing uncommon ground" as only the finest lots from their oldest vineyards are selected for this composite blend.

Pomegranate minerality. Deep flavors of briery underbrush and spicy sweet raspberry and cherry Nuances of fine toasted French oak. Juicy acidity contributes to texture and richness Expressive "old vine" purity of fruit. The underlying structure and ripe tannins from old vines provide synergy and length.

Food pairings: Beef, pasta with red sauce, barbecue, spicy cuisine

"The Segehsio preference for Zins of high ripeness and substance is again evident here, but the wine's late-harvest bias in no way lessens its sense of well-defined fruit. Its aromas and flavors of blackberries are laced with briary spice, and fruit fights its way through palpable heat at the finish. It is weighty without being too heavy, and it shows tannin enough to argue for a few years in the cellar."

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
