Winemaker 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."

Seghesio Family Vineyards, California
Seghesio Family Vineyards Home Ranch Vineyards Winery Image

Established in 1895, Seghesio Family Vineyards produces benchmark Zinfandels that honor five generations of winegrowing leadership, and share the heart of Sonoma County and our Italian heritage. Seghesio Family Vineyards encompasses more than 300 acres of estate vineyards in the Alexander, Dry Creek and Russian River Valleys – that also represent a significant amount of Old Vine plantings that are more than 50 years old and up to 125 years old. With a passionate belief that wine is made in the vineyard, Seghesio Family Vineyards pairs more than a century’s worth of experience in the vineyard with labor-intensive farming techniques that reduce yields, increase quality and ensure wines of outstanding purity and balance. True to the winery’s heritage, Seghesio Family Vineyards is focused mainly on Zinfandel and a handful of Italian varieties. Andy Robinson is the winemaker.

Home to a diverse array of smaller AVAs with varied microclimates and soil types, Sonoma County has something for every wine lover. Physically twice as large as Napa Valley, the region only produces about half the amount of wine but boasts both tremendous quality and variety. With its laid-back atmosphere and down-to-earth attitude, the wineries of Sonoma are appreciated by wine tourists for their friendliness and approachability. The entire county intends to become a 100% sustainable winegrowing region by 2019.

Grape varieties are carefully selected to reflect the best attributes of their sites—Dry Creek Valley’s consistent sunshine is ideal for Zinfandel, while the warm Alexander Valley is responsible for rich, voluptuous Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are important throughout the county, most notably in the cooler AVAs of Russian River, Sonoma Coast and Carneros. Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Syrah have also found a firm footing here.

Unapologetically bold, spice-driven and jammy, Zinfandel has secured it’s title as the darling of California vintners by adapting well to the states’ diverse microclimates and landscapes. Born in Croatia, it later made its way to southern Italy where it was named Primitivo. Fortunately, the imperial nursery of Vienna catalogued specimens of the vine, which sourced a journey to New England in 1829. Parading the true American spirit, Zinfandel found a new home in California during the Gold Rush of 1849. Somm Secret—California's ancient vines of Zinfandel are those that survived the neglect of Prohibition; today these vines produce the most concentrated, ethereal and complex examples.
