A lush and intense Zinfandel from one of America's oldest producers. Deep colour and flavour make it a powerful and satisfying red, while freshness and ripe tannins make it great with richer food. A classic style that only top Californians can deliver, cellar or decant now -- delicious stuff!

Overview

Grape

Zinfandel

Its Origins

In 1886 Edoardo Seghesio left his family vineyards in Piedmont, Italy and arrived in America to begin a new life. He ended up in Sonoma County where the new wine industry was flourishing. In 1895, after a decade of experience with the climate and soils, Edoardo chose the western bench of Alexander Valley as his stake in the New World and planted his first vineyard to Zinfandel, a very common wine grown by Italian immigrants as it resembled the soft, fruit-driven wines of home. After a rough time during the 20th century due to Prohibition, the estate is now run by winemaker Ted Seghesio, and has expanded to include vineyards in the Russian River Valley, Dry Creek Valley, San Lorenzo and elsewhere in the Alexander Valley

What The Critics Say

90/100 Wine Spectator

"This is loaded with zesty blackberry and raspberry fruit, offering a vibrant structure and appealing accents of toasted sage, white pepper and licorice. Drink now through 2027. 102,000 cases made." Drink 2018 - 2027

92/100 Connoisseur's Guide (2012 vintage)

"Over the years, Seghesio's solid Zins bearing the simple Sonoma County designation have been among the better values to be found, but this 2012 just might be the best bottling yet and is a deep, very well-focused, impressively extracted wine that is long on fruity muscle. While it takes on an edge of astringency at the finish, its tannins are not out of bounds and afford it the spine and the structure needed for aging, and service with the richer foods for which it is made will make its minor, last-minute heat next to unnoticeable."
