#12 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011
Our 2009 Home Ranch Zinfandel displays generous helpings of blackberry, raspberry and other brambly fruit characteristic of the warm Alexander Valley climate. Smelling these aromas heaped upon undertones of „graham crust? typical of our Home Ranch terroir paints a vivid picture of our Home Ranch Zinfandel vines at harvest time. On the palate, these components are threaded together seamlessly with subtle hints of oak, briary acidity and the soft, ripe fruit tannins that will come to embody the 2009 vintage. Could it be that we've finally found a way to bottle Ed Seghesio?s famed marionberry and vanilla ice cream dessert?!
