- Seghesio Zinfandel Sonoma 2011 Product #26858 (In Stock)
Seghesio has been turning out bold Sonoma Zinfandel for close to 100 years, and it's not surprising that they've established themselves as one of the true benchmark producers for this classic American varietal. The "entry level" Sonoma Zin is always big, bold, and spicy without becoming jammy or hot. A four-time member of Wine Spectator's Top 100 list, most recently coming in at #10 in 2007!
Smells a bit like fresh plum pie, with bright aromas of crisp black cherry, blackberry, baked plum, and cinnamon dusted pie crust. Definitely “of the vintage” in the mouth, with uncommon freshness and vivid acids surrounding the rich blue/black fruit, roasted coffee, licorice root, and cherry juice flavors that pump on through the juicy, lightly tanninc, and mouthwatering finish. A pleasing touch of sour cherry lingers over the oak spice and bramble notes at the end. Tasty now but will get bigger, richer, and more powerful over the next two winters.
"An excellent wine from a challenging vintage, with black cherry and spice aromas opening to rich wild berry, mineral and toasty sage flavors that wrap around a concentrated core of acidity and tannins."Wine Spectator 92 points
