Winemaker's Notes:

Deeply perfumed aromas of ripe cherries, raspberries and Old Vine Zin's intrinsic briary spiciness. Boysenberry pie and red plums comingle for juicy mid-palate synthesis. Old Vine Zin's complex spice undertones are highlighted with this warm vintage. Low yields in the vineyard preserved the vibrant natural acidity, adding length. A hint of French oak seasoning adds dimension to this concentrated, opulent and well balanced wine.

About Seghesio Family Vineyards:

Established in 1985, when Edoardo Seghesio planted his first Zinfandel vineyard in Sonoma County's Alexander Valley, Seghesio Family Vineyards produces wines that honor the history of Sonoma and the Seghesio family. Seghesio Family Vineyards' 300 acres in the Alexander, Dry Creek and Russian River valleys represent some of the oldest vineyards and proprietary clones. With a passionate belief that wine is made in the vineyard, Seghesio pairs a century of experience on these treasured sites with aggressive farming techniques. True to their oldest plantings, Seghesio concentrates on Zinfandel, Italian varietals and Pinot Noir. Ted Seghesio is the winemaker.
