Fairview Heights has another great Zinfandel at a great price.
Seghesio ‘Old Vine’ Zinfandel 2009
From the Winemaker: “Seghesio Old Vine Zinfandel perfectly embodies our family’s goal of Sharing Uncommon Ground as only the finest lots from our oldest vineyards are selected for this composite blend. These vineyards are rare treasures we have farmed over the course of our family’s century as grape growers. Although Old Vine is often loosely interpreted in the wine industry, our benchmark is fifty years. The average age of the vines producing this wine nears 90 years.”
Wine Spectator’s Review: “Ripe but well-structured, with wild berry and licorice aromas and rich, layered flavors of plum and smoked pepper that are balanced with a great backbone of acidity and tannins. Drink now through 2017.”
