DESCRIPTION:
Aromas of wild blueberry, briary raspberry patch and baking spice give way to a palate of juicy, ripe blackberry and black plum. Soft tannins, a rich mouthfeel and focused acidity lead to a long finish, creating a delightful wine to pair with red sauces, pizza, and barbeque, as well as sopressata and dry jack.

Each vintage, we harvest multiple diverse lots of Zinfandel that span the entire Sonoma County Zinfandel landscape. Each of these lots is produced under the careful eye of our winemaker, Andy Robinson. The best of these lots are selected to make Sonoma Zinfandel. A small amount of Petite Sirah is added to honor century old traditions and to provide color and structure. The result is a wine that offers tantalizing raspberry, blueberry, classic briary and spicy flavors with a balance of components for which Seghesio wines are known.

Seghesio Family Vineyards is woven into the history of the Sonoma wine industry. From the turn of the last century, through Prohibition and the Great Depression, throughout the challenges of survival in the 20th and 21st centuries, it is the story of one family’s adaptation and reinvention.

This offering is blended with smaller amounts of Petite Sirah, Carignan and mixed reds. Juicy and generous in blackberry and vanilla, it is a broadly appealing style, utilizing both American and French oak.

Generous, with fresh fruit, accented by cherry jam, dried sage and white pepper flavors, lingering on a sleek finish. Drink now through 2027.
