Seghesio Zins almost always hit the Zinfandel sweet spot - rich, full of fruit and depth, yet never out of balance. The Old Vines and Home Ranch Zins are usually my favorites among the great Seghesio lineup, and the 2008 Old Vines fits right in. Lovely, deep aromas of warm black raspberry pie and spicy oak precede a mouth-filling texture that's impeccably balanced from start to finish. The 15.5% alcohol is basically invisible behind the depth and velvet texture of this excellent Zin. - HK 2011-09-20
