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
