Seghesio produces a range of Zinfandels from various parts of Sonoma. This Dry Creek bottling is pure Zin from vines planted in 1972. Super-ripe raspberry fruit on the nose; just the right side of jammy. Medium-bodied and sleek, this has admirable concentration without excessive extraction. Polished tannins and remarkable elegance, acidity and length.
Bright aromas of dark cherry and black raspberry. Upfront fruit appeal supported with underpinnings of complexity and slight white pepper spice. Soft entry develops into warm, full mid-palate. Finish strikes ideal balance of tannins, fruit and acidity.
