Seghesio Sonoma Zinfandel (750ml)
Seghesio Family Vineyards is a historically significant winery in Sonoma County. Edoardo Seghesio, immigrated from Piedmont Italy and planted his first Zinfandel vines in Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley in 1895. He started out as a vigneron, supplying grapes to other winemakers, then eventually began making his own wine. The family’s land holdings expanded throughout the valley and today Seghesio has some of the oldest vineyards and clones in their possession. Seghesio farms 300 acres of certified sustainable estate vineyards and also sourced premium grapes from growers in Sonoma County.
An expressive burst of aromas of deep dark fruits lead into layered tones of lifted red fruit and a soft, luscious mid-palate. A juicy, vibrant entry with notes of mint, sasparilla, and fresh plum is interwoven with supple, textured tannins and acidity on the long, complex finish. This wine is lovely paired with grilled steak, sausage and peppers with cheesy polenta, or pasta dishes with tomato-based sauces and semi hard cheeses.
The Sonoma Zinfandel represents the Seghesio family’s ideal expression of Sonoma County Zin in any given vintage. Crafted from an average selection of more than 150 individual lots that are harvested from vineyards across Sonoma County, fermented separately and masterfully blended, the result is a bright, richly fruited, bold, and always balanced Zinfandel.
