    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deeply perfumed aromas of ripe cherries, raspberries and Old Vine Zin's intrinsic briary spiciness. Boysenberry pie and red plums comingle for juicy mid-palate synthesis. Old Vine Zin's complex spice undertones are highlighted with this warm vintage. Low yields in the vineyard preserved the vibrant natural acidity, adding length. A hint of French oak seasoning adds dimension to this concentrated, opulent and well balanced wine.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Extraordinarily rich and complicated in flavors, this wine come from vineyards that are at least 50 years old. It's dry and spicy, with textbook Zin notes of wild berries and currants, but also exotic minerals that come from the soil. Yes, the alcohol is high, but that is the signature of Seghesio's marvelous Zinfandels.

    Dense and powerful, with blackberry, sage and olive aromas that lead to deep, slightly rustic flavors of huckleberry and white pepper. Tannins are a bit untamed. Needs time. Best after 2012.

    Wine Spectator

    The medium to full-bodied 2008 Zinfandel Old Vine has a deep ruby/purple color and a nose of garrigue, lavender and Provencal herbs. With juicy berry fruit flavors as well as notes of briar, underbrush and pepper, it is a classic North Coast Zinfandel to drink over the next 3-4 years.
