Old vine seems to indicate that the wine comes grapes from an older grape vine. The older the vine, the less they produce, and supposedly the grapes they do produce are better. When visiting Napa's wine region there are some vineyards that have vines so old they grow grapes that are no longer cultivated. On Zinfandel, old vine seems to indicate their grapes come from this sort of wine. There is no regulation on using the term old vine so it may be part marketing as well as an indication some of their grapes come from older vines.
