Review date: April 11, 2012

Wine Review: This is Seghesio’s entry level offering. It is always very good. This vintage continues those winning ways. It is opaque and very dark purple colored Zinfandel opens with a very inviting blueberry bouquet with hints of blackberry jam. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, juicy and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a very tasty black raspberry with notes of boysenberry, black pepper and blackberry. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are quite sticky. Its fruit flavors also linger for a while. This is a Very Good Zin. It will go really well with some messy barbecue ribs. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Spicy, lush black fruit of Alexander Valley. Briary and raspberry flavors, along with structure, of cooler Dry Creek Valley. Characteristic synergy of components – balanced and elegantly structured. Pair with red sauces, pizza, barbecue, spicy cuisine and a variety of meats

Organic status: not organic

Your comments on this wine:





"Bottles of wines aren't like paintings. At some point, you need to consume them. The object of life is to die with no bottles in your cellar. To drink your last bottle of wine and go to sleep that night and not wake up."
