The 2012 Zinfandel Old Vine comes from vines that are at least 50-years-old. It offers oodles of black cherry and blackcurrant fruit along with spice box, pepper and fruitcake notes. Full-bodied, heady and complex, it is the most multidimensional of these 2012 Zinfandels. It is ideal for drinking over the next 4-5 years. (Dec 2014)
In 1895, Edoardo Seghesio planted his first vineyard in America to Zinfandel. Today, four generations of grape growers later, half of our family's 400 acres of vineyard are planted to Zinfandel. While the BATF governs most wine labeling, they have no classification for "Old Vines." Our family benchmark is 60 years old and older. The average age of these vines is 90 years old. These old vines link our family's trade from its beginnings to today.
|Begun in 1895 by your great grandparents, Edoardo and Angela Seghesio, Seghesio Family Vineyards is a collection of sustainably farmed estate vineyards in Sonoma County, hand-tended by our family for four generations.
