Seghesio Old Vine Zinfandel 2021 is an exceptional expression of the bold and spicy flavors that characterize the richness of truly old vines. Sourced from vineyards averaging 75 years old, this wine boasts a complex and intense profile. The vintage of 2021 was marked by a smooth harvest despite the challenges posed by limited water supply, leading to intensely flavored grapes that exude vibrant mouthfeel and distinct varietal character. Hand-harvested and meticulously sorted, the grapes underwent fermentation in small open-top stainless-steel tanks, with gentle aeration facilitated through punch down and pumping over techniques. Aged for 15 months in French and American oak, this Zinfandel unveils wild berry, mocha, and black licorice flavors, intertwined with hints of cedar, plum, and mixed berry fruit, complemented by lively tannins.
This vintage of Seghesio Old Vine Zinfandel 2021 has garnered high praise, receiving 94 points from Wine Spectator and 91 points from Jeb Dunnuck. Wine Spectator lauds its finesse and briary fruit, highlighting its wild berry, mocha, and black licorice flavors that culminate in lively tannins. Jeb Dunnuck recognizes its immediate charm, with notes of scorched earth, cedar, and plum, alongside pressed red flowers and dusty earth, all supported by ripe tannins. These critical acclaims underscore the exceptional quality and distinct character of this remarkable Zinfandel from Seghesio Family Vineyards.

Jeb Dunnuck

The 2021 Zinfandel Old Vine offers up loads of scorched earth, cedar and plum, and on the palate, it reveals a bit of mixed berry fruit, with pressed red flowers and dusty earth. Juicy and inviting, with ripe tannins, this has a lot of immediate charm to drink over the next few years.
