(1998 Vintage) In 1998, cool weather slowly ripened a very small crop producing concentrated clusters of deeply colored fruit possessing Zins tantalizing black raspberry, briery qualities. Gentle destemming and a vigerous, warm fermentation produced this Old Vine Zin, pure in expression and broad in character. -Ted Seghesio

Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(2006 Vintage) Very much cast in the very ripe, very extracted manner that has come to be the Segehsio stamp, this dramatic wine offers up a broad sweep of blackberry fruit highlighted with suggestions of chocolate, sweet oak and jam. It is absolutely mouthfilling stuff, and it shows a slight trim of heat at the finish, but it is marked first and last by its very powerful fruit and will shine as a partner to savory pork roasts.
