Winemaker's Notes

Number 11 on Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines of 2004!

The most successful vintage ever of this benchmark for affordable, spicy, and altogether delicious Sonoma Zinfandel. Characteristic balance with dark, briary fruit - wonderful.

"Wonderful balance and sense of elegance, offering ripe, complex fruit flavors, with spicy black cherry, blackberry, pomegranate, herb and sage notes that add flavor dimensions and complexity. Firm but ripe tannins add structure, allowing the fruit to push through. Drink now through 2009."
-Wine Spectator

"Our Sonoma Zin is a collage of Northern Sonoma's vineyard landscape. While primarily estate grown, we purchase additional fruit from growers to meet an ever-increasing demand for this substantial wine. The extra steps we want growers to take to produce high quality fruit are not readily accepted by many. Our growers comprehend that timely canopy management throughout the growing season is required to produce high quality fruit. Embracing Seghesio's quality only viticultural standards is more costly and the grower ends up with less crop. The payoff, obviously, is in the bottle.
Sonoma Zin consistently exhibits ripe, dark fruit qualities, with an inviting Sonoma briary/spicy varietal character, juicy richness and balance. Salute!" -Ted Seghesio, Winemaker

Our family roots are firmly planted in Zinfandel. Grandpa Edoardo Seghesio planted Zinfandel on our Home Ranch in Alexander Valley in 1895. Today, we, his grandchildren, share his passion as we farm over 200 acres of estate Zinfandel in Alexander and Dry Creek Valleys. This wine originates from sites that have produced Zinfandel for over a century, as well as newer sites that utilize proprietary clones and the most advanced viticultural practices.

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
