Jim and Ned Neumiller, Seghesio’s father and son growers, have been working with the Maffei family for a few years to secure fruit for a single vineyard wine from head-trained heritage selection blocks planted in 1928 and 1942.
Chianti Station, Alexander Valley. This acre and a half, planted in 1910, is the rich source of four unique Sangiovese clones that have subsequently been used as mother clones in our other Sangiovese vineyards. Fortunately, the original vineyard has been preserved exclusively for use in this tiny production wine.

Deeply perfumed aromas of raspberry and old vine Zin’s intrinsic briary spiciness. Layered bright fruit flavors reminiscent of a cherry pie with a graham cracker crust. Old vine Zinfandel’s complex spice undertones with a long, persistent finish. Low yields in the vineyard preserved the vibrant natural acidity and balanced tannins.
