Seghesio Old Vines Zinfandel 2014, Sonoma County, California, USA
PRESS: Wine Spectator - 91 points. "Dense and rustic, with no shortage of personality. Aromas of dried cherry and smoky herb lead to dense flavors of briary plum, licorice and spiced sage. The tannins show roughness around the edges. Best from 2018 through 2025."

Tasting Notes: Deeply perfumed aromas of raspberry and old vine Zinfandel's intrinsic briary spiciness with layered bright fruit flavors reminiscent of a cherry pie with a graham cracker crust. Notes of old vine Zinfandel’s complex spice undertones and low yields in the vineyard preserved the vibrant natural acidity and balanced tannins through the long, persistent finish.
