Seghesio Family Vineyards, Healdsburg
6 Liter Old Vine Zinfandel, Signed, & Chef’s Table Experience for 4
Your six liter bottle is signed “Salute!” by Ted Seghesio.
The 2015 Old Vine Zinfandel comes from old head-pruned vineyards in Alexander and Dry Creek Valleys, farmed by the Passalacqua and Saini families for Seghesio.
Although “old vine” is often loosely interpreted in the wine industry, Seghesio’s benchmark minimum is 50 years, with the average age of the vines being about 70 years old. True old vine Zinfandel is distinguished by head-trained vines with think, gnarled trunks and is planted with ancient clones dating back to the turn of the century.
The wine has deeply perfumed aromas of raspberry and Old Vine Zin’s intrinsic briary spiciness. The layered bright fruit flavors are reminiscent of cherry pie with a graham cracker crust, along with Old Vine Zinfandel’s complex spice undertones. Long, persistent finish.
The low yields in the vineyards preserved the vibrant natural acidity and balanced tannins.
