Bottle Notes, Zinfandel

2017 Seghesio Zinfandel Sonoma County – Bottle Notes

Seghesio Family Vineyards  was established in 1895, when Edoardo Seghesio planted his first Zinfandel vineyard in Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley. The focus at Seghesio has always been Zinfandel and Italian varietals.

Blood red in color. 14.8% ABV. Jammy nose of red fruits, earthy loam and pepper. Medium body with mouth watering acidity. Rich and elegant. Raspberry compote, strawberry, cinnamon and pepper on the palate. Tremendous length on the finish. Delicious Sonoma County Zinfandel that delivers each and every vintage. Very well priced. Best over the next 2-4 years.

My rating: 92 points.

This wine is readily available at retail. A solid value year in and year out. I found this bottle at Costco for $18. You also might want to consider some single vineyard Zinfandels from Seghesio including the Monte Rosso and Rockpile.
