Seghesio Old Vine Zinfandel perfectly embodies the family's goal of Sharing Uncommon Ground as only the finest lots from their oldest vineyards are selected for this composite blend. Although Old Vine is often loosely interpreted in the wine industry, the benchmark is fifty years. The average age of the vines producing this wine nears 90 years.

Reviews:

"Floral blueberry and black raspberryscented nose...full-bodied mouthfeel and serious tannin in the background." -Rated 90, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Very big, deeply flavored and densely concentrated wine...a massive juggernaut of blackberries, blueberries, coffee and sweet, smoky oak." -Rated 93, Wine Enthusiast

"Very much a convincing statement of Seghesio's very ripe but very fruity style of Zinfandel, the latest Old Vine bottling is a fairly big-bodied working that, despite its certain flare of creamy oak and extracted berries, is a surprisingly well-balanced wine that could do with age. Powerful and potent and a bit gruff as it unfolds, it is underscored by obvious heat and stiffened by acidity, but not for a moment does it relinquish its firm grasp on fruit, and its prospects for grow are assured." -Rated 91, Connoisseur's Guide to California Wines
