Seghesio Sonoma Zinfandel (750ml)
Seghesio Family Vineyards is a historically significant winery in Sonoma County. Italian immigrant, Edoardo Seghesio, 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.
Every year, approximately 35 lots of Zinfandel are brought in – averaging 25-30 years in age. The best of these lots are selected to make Sonoma Zinfandel. A small amount of Petite Sirah is added to the wine for added complexity. The result is a tantalizing black raspberry and classic briary flavoured wine with a balance of components for which Seghesio wines are known.
