Bottle Notes, Zinfandel

2021 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.

Dark red in color. 15% ABV. Savory nose of red and black fruits, licorice and pepper. Medium body with medium to strong acidity. Claret style Zinfandel with dark fruits and perfect balance. Black cherry, black raspberry, plums and pepper on the palate. The finish is long and supple. So consistent year in and year out and always a great value. Best over the next several years.

My rating: 91 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.
