Winemaker Notes

Blackberry, raspberry and other brambly fruit characteristic of Alexander Valley. "Graham crust" undertones typical of the Home Ranch terroir. Subtle hints of oak, briary acidity and soft, ripe fruit tannins.

Pairs well with well-marbeled cuts of beef and rich braised dishes like short ribs and osso bucco, strong salty cheeses - Bleu, Pecorino and Feta - as well as tomato based pastas with earthy undertones like mushrooms and truffles.

Blend: 85% Zinfandel, 15% Petite Sirah

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Dark and brooding, with bold licorice and wild berry aromas and burly, layered flavors of blackberry, smoky cracked pepper and dark Asian spice. The tannins firm up on the finish. Best from 2017 through 2024.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Robust and brawny, this longtime estate wine offers a combination of red and black berry, rich and succulent as if in a crumble, topped in vanilla and pleasing sprinkles of nutmeg and cardamom. Complex and layered, it delivers in flavor and structure.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2013 Zinfandel Home Ranch comes from a vineyard originally planted in 1895 by the family’s founder, Eduardo Seghesio. The wine has a dark ruby color, a classic Zinfandel nose of black cherry and briary wild mountain fruit, some spice, earth, medium to full body, and nice dusty, loamy soil undertones. Drink it over the next 5-7 years.

Seghesio Family Vineyards, Alexander Valley, Sonoma County, California
Image of winery

Established in 1895, 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.

Alexander Valley

View all wine

Nearly a northern extension of Napa Valley, Alexander Valley starts just north of the small, Knights Valley, and is just a few minutes drive from the Napa town of Calistoga. It is Sonoma County’s hottest AVA. But the Russian River, which runs through the valley, creates cooler pockets and its soft, alluvial soil is ideal for grape growing, especially Cabernet Sauvignon. In fact, some believe that Alexander Valley Cabernets truly rival the best from Napa Valley and many of the heavy-hitter producers have largely invested here.

In addition to Cabernet Sauvignon, which makes up over 50% of plantings, Merlot and old vine Zinfandel thrive here. Ample, fleshy Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc dominate white wine production. Some old-vine plantings of Grenache have also been discovered and more recent experiments with Sangiovese and Barbera show great promise.

Zinfandel

View all wine

Unapologetically bold, spice-driven and jammy, Zinfandel is often thought of as California’s flagship grape. And it fact it owns this title by having the ability to adapt to the states’ many microclimates and landscapes, producing unique expressions of the grape throughout. Zinfandel thrives in California’s Central Coast, as well throughout Sonoma County, parts of Napa County, the Sierra Foothills, Lodi and Paso Robles.

Zinfandel was born in Croatia and later made its way to southern Italy where it became known as Primitivo. The astute imperial nursery of Vienna collected specimen of the vine and acted as the source of its importation to New England by George Gibbs, probably in 1829. Eventually, making its way to California around the Gold Rush of 1849, Zinfandel found its new home, parading the true American spirit.

In the Glass

Zinfandel commonly expresses powerful notes of dark plum, blackberry, sweet spice, dark chocolate and licorice. Very ripe examples may express a hint of dried fruit like raisin, fig or prune. But Zinfandel grown in cooler, coastal zones often expresses red fruit, black pepper and fresh herbal characteristics of juniper and menthol.

Perfect Pairings

Zinfandel is a powerfully flavored wine, mingling happily with bold food like brisket, lamb shanks, pork ribs or anything barbecued. More delicate Zins work with pork, lamb curry and even Ceasar Salad or Salad Nicoise.

Sommelier Secret

Thanks to its popularity both for home winemaking and as communion wine, many Zinfandel vines were able to survive prohibition, leading to the abundance of "old vine" Zinfandels. These low-yielding, ancient vines tend to produce wine that is deeply concentrated, delicately perfumed and decidedly complex.
