- Seghesio Zinfandel Sonoma County 2013 Product #30229 (In Stock)
Out of Stock Now, Expected Back In Tuesday December 22. Taking Orders Now.
The Seghesio name has been synonomous with Zinfandel ever since Edoardo Seghesio planted his first vines in Sonoma's Alexander Valley in 1895. Edoardo's great-great-great (?) grandson, Ted Seghesio, still makes the wines here, maintaining the family's 120-year tradition of care and quality – and value.
This wine, their Sonoma County Zinfandel has been pulling down "Best Buy" awards from Wine Spectator since the late 1980s and has made the Top 100 list 4 or 5 times since then. The 2013 is another winner. It’s 95%+ Zinfandel with just a touch of Petit Sirah for color and mid-palate fruit. You’ll find all of Zinfandel’s briary berry fruit on display here from the big aromas of cherry and raspberry to the red/black fruit mélange on the palate and long finish. The dash of herb, sweet spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, coriander), and dusting of black pepper make this a sweet-and-savory party in your mouth.
"A lively, zesty red that offers bright cherry and tarragon aromas and sleekly layered flavors of briary raspberry, nutmeg and fresh-cracked black pepper. Drink now through 2021."Wine Spectator 92 points
- Trentadue Merlot 2012 Product #30315 (In Stock)
Alexander Valley and Merlot are a great fit (making us wonder why we don't see more of them). This is 100% Merlot from Trentadue's Geyersville estate, picked ripe, fermented cool, and given a just right touch of oak. Pretty aromas and flavors of red currant and cherry from front to back, framed by notes of crushed herb and spice. Finishes soft, supple, and very inviting.
- Robert Biale Basic Black Red 2012 Product #30450 (In Stock)
A brand new wine from Zinfandel master Robert Biale, this is an exciting attempt to replicate "Old World" field blends with "New World" precision and ripeness. A blend of 35% Syrah, 35% Petite Sirah, 10% Grenache, 15% Zinfandel, and 5% Carignan from sites across Sonoma were harvested simultaneously and co-fermented in a single, integrated, lot. A 16 day fermentation and 17 months aging in 25% new French oak allowed everything to come together in this exciting, powerful, soon-to-be classic!
"Rich and delicious, featuring date nut bread, crushed wild berry, Earl Grey tea, nutmeg and forest floor notes. The tannins are refined and plush, with a long, lingering finish. Petite Sirah, Syrah, Zinfandel, Grenache and Carignane. Drink now through 2025."Wine Spectator 91 points
