About Seghesio Family Vineyards

The Seghesio family are true veterans in the world of California wine. After all, they first planted vineyards in Sonoma County in 1895. Only in the last three decades, however, have they started estate bottling their own wines. Since then, they've established a reputation for classic, pliant Zinfandels, with intense dark berry fruit, hints of black pepper and spices, and oak in the background.

Great Value Zin
05/03/2011
by ids_wineguy
The Seghesio family has making Zins down pat. They consistently produce this Sonoma County Zin in a style that is true to the fruit. Enjoyable by itself or with food.
2005 Vintage is wonderful

Wow, what a bargain. If you like a medium-bodied, fruity Zin, the "Sonoma County" 2005 vintage is a real value for the money. Thoroughly enjoyable.
bursting with flavor

medium-bodied and full of flavor. Beautiful ripe bouquet with a rich cherry and blackberry profile, supported by a hint of peppery spiciness. Great alone or with food.
Very smooth and enjoyable Zin -- 2005

Great wine, good presentation, very smooth, very pleasing finish. We enjoyed it at our favorite restaurant in Myrtle Beach. I will definitely be buying this to my own stock.

We've had this 3times at Ryan's Steak House in W-S on our anniversary! Lovely bouquet that lasts throughout and a tasty berry - peppery flavor.
A Rare Value

One Zin that goes the distance. Full, Fruity, Dry yet a touch of smoothness. Great upon opening right out of the gate. A pleasnt yet complex full bodied wine with great color. For Zin lovers, they just don't make them at this price any better.
Tremendous smoothness

Tremendous smoothness for a Zin - didn't require much aeration. Absolutely pleasant from the first sip. Highly recommmend this wine/vintage!
My favorite everyday Zin

We visited the Seghesio Family Vineyards 3 years ago and have been huge fans ever since. It's easy to drink and has a wonderful finish. I believe it's the best valued Zin in it's price range.
Nice Zin

Had a bottle of the 07 @ Bourbon Steak. Excellent when paired with filet. Excellent wine for the price. Not quite the calibur of the Ridge or Turley Zins, but great value Zin. Sure to please all.
Nice and jammy for the money + depth !!!

This ZIN has deep fruit of blackberry,boysenberry + light licorice the zin is very balance that the key to the zin.Red wine tasting sheet score= 92.1 This was the 2008 sonoma zinfandel Seghesio.

by Press11374684
A consistent winner! For the price, there are very few that compare. Black cherry and spice aromas; blackberry jam and licorice flavors, this wine will only get better with age.
Great Zin....

I was never a big fan of Zins until I tried this - I see the light (or did I taste it?)!

For folks that really like a red zin you can't find a better deal. This is a good one.
One of the best out there

I think the 2003 is better than the 2004... but if you like zinfandel you'll love this. The Seghesio family knows what they're doing -- lots of body, flavors and a nice finish. Will buy more.
nice all around

This is Zinfandel-strong, sweet, powerful, heady! I like this wine alot and liked it much better when it was 12.99 just shy of 2 years ago. After the WS gave them kudos, seghesio Zins have gone up in price. Just tried the 2003 and it is excellent-kudos.
Elegant Zin

The 03' is a very elegant and classy zin. Has layers of complexity without being overdone.
the 01 is good

well rated by Wine Spectator, too
Don't buy this -- I want all of it!

by Lacy10547035
This is a really great wine, in my opinion. Lots of ripe fruit, complexity, smooth, full flavored, fragrant, deep color, not too sweet, not too dry, all around wonderful to drink with food or without.
Very tasty

not worth 18$, had this right after sobon fidletown zin for $14 that was much better, so is cline. Hence, don't buy this one again
Medium body Zinfandel
10/04/2007
by Spearfisher
Berry-colored, a nose-full of young ripe fruit notes with an initial bang of peppery oak and cherry on the palate. Then a somewhat disappointing too-fast finish and it's done. WS gave the 2005 a score of 90.

2001 Vintage: Completed overdone and over oaked with lots of cloying vanilla notes.

About California

It is remarkable that an industry essentially less than a half-century old could capture the attention of the American wine-buying public to the degree that California has. Powerful consumer interest in California wine is driven by two major factors. The more obvious reason is that California's best wines, which come from grapes grown in...

Zinfandel

Zinfandel is not the rage it was in the 1980s and early 1990s, as there are now too many wines made from overripe fruit or from young vines, or overwhelmed by excessive use of new barrels. Today's Zin styles range from elegant, taut, and claret-like midweights to superripe and potty behemoths, with off-the-charts...
