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."
