Seghesio Sonoma Zinfandel 2020
|Region||California, Sonoma County|
Seghesio Sonoma Zinfandel features a blend of grapes harvested from vineyards in the Dry Creek and Alexander valleys of California wine country. Harvesting from multiple locations with different mineral makeup in the dirt is something the Seghesio family can do with each vintage, thanks to their own estate farms and a selection of sites that use the most advanced practices in grape-growing today. When you buy Seghesio Sonoma Zinfandel online from Vine Republic, you are selecting a wine that was hand-crafted from vineyards personally selected by master winemaker Ted Seghesio.
Always rated well by Wine Spectator, Wine Advocate and Wine Enthusiast, this zin is balanced with an elegant structure. Barreled for 10 months in American, French and Hungarian oak, bright cherries and tarragon lead on the nose. Before you realize it, sleek layers of blackberry, raspberry, blueberry, nutmeg and pepper hit the palate with a hint of mocha. While the finish is short, it is structured with a bit of spice.
Whether you are buying this widely available wine for an evening in or a VIP stay in your cellar, you should be able to enjoy this wine any time from arrival well into the next decade.
Parties interested in pairing this highly rated zinfandel with a meal should include spicy cuisine and red sauces on the menu. Pizza and barbecue go well, or even a meat-and-cheese tray with salami.
Plump and briary, this is a zesty update on old-school Zin, offering wild berry, underbrush and licorice flavors that build richness and structure on the lively finish. Drink now through 2028. 100,685 cases made.
