Food Pairings for Seghesio Family Vineyards Zinfandel Alexander Valley San Lorenzo
Rachel Ann Passalacqua met Eugene “Pete” Seghesio when he purchased her father’s grapes from the San Lorenzo Vineyard in southernmost Alexander Valley. In 1956, the couple was married. Seghesio Farms now manages that same vineyard, purchased in 1896 by Rachel Ann’s grandfather for the sum of ten gold coins. At that time, the vineyard was already planted to and producing a Zinfandel field blend. Today, it represents our oldest heritage vineyard site.
Seductive from first sight! Striking color density and a deep, dark purple hue foreshadow the black raspberry fruit and intriguing spices. Showcases lighter aromas of spice box and shaved cocoa nibs highlighted by a floral perfume. The wine fills the mouth from first sip with flavors of fruit and spice supported with pillars of ripe tannin and youthful acidity bound to stand the test of time.
