Winemaker's Notes:

Exhibiting trademark qualities highly sought in Pinot Noir, Costiera has the telltale aromas of dark cherries mingled with an earthy complexity, which, at this writing is showing under the guise of fresh mushrooms and fresh vineyard soil. A silky entry leads to mouth-filling flavors of ripe cherry compote or cherry butter. The texture in the mid-palate could be visualized as a cat's eye marble with the acidity, tannins and fruit/savory flavors ever-present and seamlessly intertwined.

About Seghesio Family Vineyards:

Established in 1985, when Edoardo Seghesio planted his first Zinfandel vineyard in Sonoma County's Alexander Valley, Seghesio Family Vineyards produces wines that honor the history of Sonoma and the Seghesio family. Seghesio Family Vineyards' 300 acres in the Alexander, Dry Creek and Russian River valleys represent some of the oldest vineyards and proprietary clones. With a passionate belief that wine is made in the vineyard, Seghesio pairs a century of experience on these treasured sites with aggressive farming techniques. True to their oldest plantings, Seghesio concentrates on Zinfandel, Italian varietals and Pinot Noir. Ted Seghesio is the winemaker.
