Zinfandel was known as the "boss" grape in Sonoma County. It earned its popularity by thriving in the California sun and providing good color and sugar at harvest. This wine comes primarily from four estate vineyards: Home Ranch, San Lorenzo and River Road in Alexander Valley, and Cortina in Dry Creek Valley.
Ageing Potential: 2-4 Years
Every year, Seghesio bring in approximately 35 lots of Zinfandel averaging 25-30 years in age. Each of these lots is produced under the careful eye of winemaker, Ted Seghesio. 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 flavored wine with a balance of components for which Seghesio wines are known.
