Seghesio Sonoma Zinfandel 2015
The 2013 growing season began early with hardly any rainfall and few significant heat spikes. These ideal grape growing conditions produced wines with a great balance of acidity and sugar, good tannin structure, and excellent fruit flavors. The older vines devigorized root system produces less, yet more intense, fruit highlighting Zinfandel’s briary spice characteristic.
Seghesio Old Vine Zinfandel blends the finest lots from vineyards planted between 1920 and 1950 on the benchlands of the Dry Creek and western Alexander valleys. Although "old vine" is often loosely interpreted in the wine industry, our benchmark is 50 years. True old vine Zinfandel is distinguished by dry-farmed, thick, gnarled trunks and is planted with historic clones dating back to the years before Prohibition. In each of these old blocks, vines of Carignane and/or Petite Sirah are interplanted, as was typical of the era.
Wine Enthusiast – Grippy in wound-up black fruit and black pepper, this is a ripe, bright and softly layered wine, completely in keeping with its old-vine status in dusty, complex notes. Spicy cinnamon and leathery pepper combine on the lengthy finish. Drink now through 2021. Cellar Selection
