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.

($36) Dark purple. Powerful dark berry and cherry preserves on the nose, with vanillin oak spice and cured tobacco gaining power with air. Fleshy and ripe, with sweet blackberry and boysenberry flavors. Soft tannins gain strength on the long, sweet finish. A lush, weighty and emphatically fruity style of zin that demands spicy or grilled foods, or strong cheeses.
