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.

Plump and supple, with soft raspberry, toasted spice and licorice flavors that glide along a silky finish.

This is an impressive appellation wine, blended with smaller percentages of Petite Sirah, Carignan, Syrah and mixed reds. Aged in both American and French oak, it is earthy, thick and brawny in leather, tobacco and coffee. Black baked fruit completes the picture, finishing in dust.

This estate has turned out a delicious 2017 Zinfandel Sonoma, and it has plenty of classic Zinfandel blue fruits, spice, cigar, and cedary aromas in a medium to full-bodied, pleasure-bent style. This is rock solid and a perfect barbecue wine to enjoy over the coming 2-4 years.
