Seghesio Zinfandel Sonoma 750ml
Discover Zinfandel Wines
Red Zinfandel is a grape varietal with black and blue skins that is mostly produced and consumed in the United States.
This grape tends to have lighter-bodied qualities in the glass while yet retaining strong notes. Zin has a strong acidic content and a traditionally high alcohol level, which contributes to this (up to 17 percent in some cases).
Because of these two characteristics, Zinfandel may have a medium body on the palate.
Raspberry, raisin, cherry, cassis, and plum are just a few of the rich red fruit tastes found in this grape type. Black pepper spice, tobacco, dry barnyard door, and coffee are often used to complement these jammy fruit tastes.
While these are the broad strokes, Zinfandel tastes may vary widely, and alcohol level is a significant factor.
Cooler temperature Zins are said to have more red fruit tastes, whereas warmer climate varietal wines have more black fruit and pepper subtleties, depending on maturity at harvest.
Over 70% of Zinfandel acreage is owned by the United States, with the rest held by Italy (approximately 27%) and different places across Australia, South Africa, and Mexico.
About the Producer: Seghesio Family Vineyards
Seghesio Family Vineyards is a wine producer based in Sonoma Valley, California. It is best known for its wines produced from the Zinfandel grape variety. The property was founded in 1895 on the original 53-hectare (130-acre) Home Ranch vineyards. The property was expanded in the mid-20th century with vineyards that previously sold fruit in Segesio. In the early 1980s, Healdsberg Segesio was a wholesaler, but was converted to premium wines when Ted Segesio joined the family business. In 2014, the company added 10 hectares (24 acres) of Rancho Montafi vineyards in the Russo Valley, about half of which were planted in 1916. As a result, the total area of the Segesio property increased to 160 hectares (400 acres) with another 10 hectares being contracted to Rockpile. A small part of the portfolio belongs to historic vineyards from other producers. Segesio produces an extensive range of Zinfandel wines, most notably Home Ranch cuvées and the San Lorenzo vineyards of the Alexandra Valley. Block 8 comes from a younger block in the San Lorenzo vineyard. There are several other manifestations of this variety from several other vineyards, including one that peaks high in the Mayakamas Mountains and one that falls under the Rockpile AVA. Estate produces several other Italian-style red wines. These include three wines made from Sangiovese, as well as Barbera, Aglianico and Defiant, a blend of Aglianico, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. There are also three white varietal wines from Pinot Grigio, Vermentino and Arneis.
