Description

Seghesio Sonoma County Old Vine Zinfandel 2017

93 pts – WINE ADVOCATE

This wine comes from the old head-pruned vineyards in Alexander and Dry Creek valleys farmed by the multi-generational Passalacqua and Saini families for Seghesio. The older vines devigorized root system produces less, yet more intense, fruit highlighting Zinfandel’s briary spice characteristic.

Tasting Notes

On the nose, notes of cherry, cedar and cigar box linger with aromas of fresh licorice. Deftly structured on the palate with well-integrated tannins, fresh notes of pomegranate and red currants, a velvety mouthfeel and luscious finish, this is a wine that is built to age.

Food Pairing Notes

Pair with dishes such as beef braciole that feature richly flavored red sauces or a vegetarian sugo over pasta.
