Seghesio Family Vineyards Zinfandel

Wine Details

Wine Description

In 1893, newlyweds Edoardo and Angela Seghesio purchased their first home in Alexander Valley. As winemaker for the most prominent winery in Sonoma County, Edoardo recognized great vineyard potential surrounding the modest home. In 1895, he planted the “Home Ranch” vineyard and began our family‟s lineage of Sharing Uncommon Ground.

    "Bold aromas of briary wild berry and cracked pepper lead to plush and layered black raspberry, toasty sage and espresso flavors that finish with zesty tannins. Drink now through 2016." 90 Points Wine Spectator

    Fruit that defines lushness on the nose. Very jammy on the palate, with dark berries. With food, the jamminess is downplayed into a really nicely balanced zin with a hint of underlying body.

    (2006 Vintage) Well-defined berryish fruit is the centerpiece in both the outgoing aromas and the full, fleshy flavors of this weighty effort, yet, for all of its volume and richness, it stays nicely on the varietal track with its background notes of dry spices and briar. It is youthfully exuberant and somewhat juicy in character, and it will be at its best in service with savory roasts of pork marinated in brine and basted with young port.

    (2006 Vintage) Ruby-red. Rich dark berry, cherry and plum aromas are complicated by smoky herbal and floral qualities. Fleshy and round, offering deep, jammy dark fruit flavors and sweet vanillin oak spice. Really stains the palate, finishing sweet and persistent. This already-approachable zinfandel leaves a strong blackberry quality behind.
