2020 Seghesio Family Vineyards Pagani Zinfandel
The oldest vines at Pagani Ranch were planted in the 1880's though the majority of the vineyard blocks were established through 1922. The gnarly head-trained and dry-farmed old vine Zinfandel blocks are interspersed with Alicante Bouschet and planted in narrow rows better suited to horses than tractors. Most of the farming is done by hand and the resulting wines reflect the meticulous care taken in the vineyard. Silky, lush, and complex, our Pagani Zinfandel is a tribute to one of Sonoma County's most cherished vineyards.
Aromas of black currant, baking spice, pastry crust, and anise fill out the bouquet. On the palate, the wine is rich and insistent with bright acidity and fine tannins. Notes of cherry linger all the way through to the wine’s persistent and smooth finish.
