This was rated #10 of the top 100 wines of 2008 by 'winedictator' (93 pts) .Rasberries and plums and light vanilla and strawberry candy. Complex , supple wine, starts with warm deep berry flavours, followed by a slightly alcholic burst of cherry/plum fruit and moderate tannins that lightly pluck at your cheeks. Finishes niicely with a faint peppery spice note that lingers. Keeps pace with zinfandels twice the price.

I absolutely loved this one. Big, bold, and complex. This is pretty much my favorite wine right now.

Balanced, opulent and smooth. Spice and red berries. Full bodied with a medium finish.

Licorice/salmiak and cocoa, dark fruit, with enough tannins and acidity to make this is very well balanced wine.

The Seghesio family sources grapes for their Old Vine Zinfandel from old head-pruned vineyards in Alexander and Dry Creek Valleys. These are vineyards the family has farmed over the course of the 100 years they’ve been making wine and the average age of the vines producing this wine nears 90 years. The small concentrated berries these old vines produce are fermented in small open-top barrels and then aged in French and American oak. The Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored this Zin 93 points and said “This is a very big, deeply flavored and densely concentrated wine. It’s so powerful, you might want to age it for a few years. As currently constructed it’s a massive juggernaut of blackberries, blueberries, coffee and sweet, smoky oak, finished with exotic spices.” Very Limited!

The 2007 Zinfandel Old Vine (a selection from the oldest vineyards) reveals a dense ruby/purple-tinged color as well as a floral, blueberry and black raspberry-scented nose, a rich, full-bodied mouthfeel, and serious tannin in the background. Textured, rich, and long with considerable upside, it can be drunk now or cellared for a decade.

Briary and appealingly rustic, with wild berry, toasty sage and earthy mineral aromas plus flavors that are tightly wound, with lively acidity. Firm tannins. Needs time. Best from 2012 through 2016.

The deep plum/ruby-colored 2002 Zinfandel Old Vine (16.6% alcohol) boasts loads of fruit in addition to a big, spicy nose of composty notes intermixed with black cherries, raspberries, pepper, and herbs. Drink this full-bodied, rich, dense, delicious 2002 over the next 3-4 years.

Winemaker's Notes:

The Seghesio family roots are firmly planted in Zinfandel. Edoardo Seghesio planted Zinfandel on the family’s Home Ranch in the Alexander Valley in 1895. Today his grandchildren share his passion as they farm over 80 hectares of Zinfandel in Alexander and Dry Creek Valley. This wine originates from sites that have produced Zinfandel for a century, as well as newer vineyards planted with the best clones and benefiting from the most advanced viticultural practices. This Zinfandel has aromas of fresh ripe raspberries and blueberries intertwined with briar patch spices. On the palate flavours of raspberries, blackberries and blueberries persist with notes of creamy oak. A silky and refined texture with juicy acidity and smooth, integrated tannins.
