2021 Seghesio Zinfandel Sonoma County
Winemaker Notes: An expressive burst of aromas of deep dark fruits lead into layered tones of lifted red fruit and a soft, luscious mid-palate. A juicy, vibrant entry with notes of black cherry, black raspberry, fig, baking spice and fresh Santa Rosa plum, is interwoven with supple, textured tannins and acidity on the long, complex finish. Pair well with grilled steak, sausage and peppers with cheesy polenta, and pasta dishes with tomato-based sauces such as baked rigatoni or pappardelle Bolognese. Pairs well with semi-hard cheeses such as dry jack – our favorite is from a local Sonoma producer, Vella Cheese Company – and aged cheddar or gouda.
Our Sonoma Zinfandel represents our ideal expression of Sonoma County Zinfandel in any given vintage. Crafted from an average selection of more than 150 individual lots that are harvested from vineyards across Sonoma County, fermented separately and masterfully blended, our Sonoma Zinfandel is bright, richly fruited, bold, and always balanced.
Seghesio Family Vineyards encompasses more than 300 acres of sustainably farmed vineyards grown in Sonoma County’s Alexander, Russian River and Dry Creek Valleys. Many of the vineyards from which we source our fruit, including our estate vineyards, are comprised of head-trained old vine plantings that must be farmed and harvested by hand, making Zinfandel a more labor-intensive variety than many others used in winemaking.
