Origin

Sourced from five different estate vineyards – Home Ranch, River Road, Lone Oak and San Lorenzo in the Alexander Valley and the Cortina Vineyard in Dry Creek Valley. 2011 was a cooler than average year with harvesting starting three weeks later than normal. This extended period produced ripe grapes with good levels of acidity, resulting in wines of great balance as well as power.

Producer

Begun in 1895 by their great grandfather, Edoardo Seghesio, Seghesio Family Vineyards is a collection of sustainably farmed estate vineyards in Sonoma County, hand-tended by four Seghesio generations. Italian wine consultant Alberto Antonini has worked alongside the family to not only develop the quality of their Sangiovese wines but to create their hallmark Zinfandel style.

Grape Variety

88% Zinfandel , 9% Petite Sirah, 2% Other Red Varieties, 1% Carignano/Carignan

Grapes were primarily estate-grown from the Home Ranch, River Road, Lone Oak and San Lorenzo vineyards in Alexander Valley, the Russian River vineyards and the Cortina vineyard in Dry Creek Valley. Careful canopy management was maintained throughout the season. Yield management techniques (including green harvest) were employed to ensure even ripening and to keep crop loads in balance.

Food Match

Perfect with bold red meat dishes and casseroles – such as ghoulash, boeuf bourguignon, and the classic venison with chocolate sauce!

Suitable for vegetarians.
