Seghesio Sonoma Zinfandel 2017
|Region||California, Sonoma County|
Each vintage, we harvest multiple diverse lots of Zinfandel that span the entire Sonoma County Zinfandel landscape. Each of these lots is produced under the careful eye of our winemaker, Ted Seghesio. The best of these lots are selected to make Sonoma Zinfandel. A small amount of Petite Sirah is added to honor century old traditions and to provide color and structure. The result is a wine that offers tantalizing raspberry, blueberry, classic briary and spicy flavors with a balance of components for which Seghesio wines are known.
This is an impressive appellation wine, blended with smaller percentages of Petite Sirah, Carignan, Syrah and mixed reds. Aged in both American and French oak, it is earthy, thick and brawny in leather, tobacco and coffee. Black baked fruit completes the picture, finishing in dust.
Plump and supple, with soft raspberry, toasted spice and licorice flavors that glide along a silky finish. Drink now through 2023.
The medium ruby colored 2017 Zinfandel Sonoma County is scented of spiced peaches, warm raspberries, blueberries and potpourri with notes of cinnamon, dried leaves and exotic spices. The palate is medium to full-bodied, soft and lush with juicy acidity and a long, flavorful finish. This is an easy-drinking but nonetheless delicious Zinfandel and a great value. 76,500 cases produced.
