Wine Advocate 90 points - The 2007 Zinfandel Old Vine (a selection from the oldest vineyards) reveals a dense ruby/purple-tinged color as well as a floral, blueberry and black raspberry-scented nose, a rich, full-bodied mouthfeel, and serious tannin in the background. Textured, rich, and long with considerable upside, it can be drunk now or cellared for a decade. (Feb 2010)
In 1895, Edoardo Seghesio planted his first vineyard in America to Zinfandel. Today, four generations of grape growers later, half of our family's 400 acres of vineyard are planted to Zinfandel. While the BATF governs most wine labeling, they have no classification for "Old Vines." Our family benchmark is 60 years old and older. The average age of these vines is 90 years old. These old vines link our family's trade from its beginnings to today.
