Seghesio Family Vineyards Zinfandel

Wine Details

Wine Description

The story of Seghesio Family Vineyards starts with Edoardo Seghesio, who planted his first Zinfandel vineyard in Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley in 1895. Since then, four generations of the Seghesio family have tended to their over 400 acres of vineyards in Alexander, Dry Creek and Russian River Valleys. When Edoardo planted his first Zinfandel vines, the grape quickly gained popularity by thriving in the California sun. To the many Italian immigrants in Sonoma County, Zinfandel was reminiscent of the fruit-driven wines of their homeland. Today, under the watchful eye of winemaker Ted Seghesio, the family Zinfandel's are constantly heralded as some of the best expressions in California.

    (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.
