Winemaker Notes

Aromas of juicy blackberry, fresh black plum, hints of baking spices and graham cracker crust lead to a mid-palate of rich ripe fruit and fine dusty tannins, with integrated oak and layers of complexity.

This wine pairs deliciously with gnocchi gorgonzola, barbeque ribs, and blue cheese.

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Medium to deep ruby colored and youthfully coiled on the nose, the 2016 Zinfandel Home Ranch offers, with time, aromas of chocolate-covered blueberries, underbrush, floral perfume, ripe peach, exotic spices and dark berries. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with spicy fruits supported by gently grainy tannins and juicy acidity, finishing long. This has the density and texture to blossom well in bottle, so give it another 2-3 years before popping the cork.
Rating: 93+

Wine Spectator
Plush and generous, with jammy blackberry, smoky anise and pepper flavors that fan out on the long finish. Drink now through 2025.

The 2016 Zinfandel Home Ranch comes from the estate in Alexander Valley and spent 14 months in 20% new French oak. It's another complex, nuanced Zinfandel that has plenty of sweet black and blue fruits, kirsch, dried herbs, and cedary spice aromas and flavors. Rich, ripe, and heady, this is a sexy, flamboyant Zinfandel that packs tons of fruit and richness yet stay nicely balanced on the palate and offers loads of pleasure. It should evolve gracefully for a decade.

Seghesio Family Vineyards Home Ranch Vineyards Winery Image

Established in 1895, Seghesio Family Vineyards produces benchmark Zinfandels that honor five generations of winegrowing leadership, and share the heart of Sonoma County and our Italian heritage. Seghesio Family Vineyards encompasses more than 300 acres of estate vineyards in the Alexander, Dry Creek and Russian River Valleys – that also represent a significant amount of Old Vine plantings that are more than 50 years old and up to 125 years old. With a passionate belief that wine is made in the vineyard, Seghesio Family Vineyards pairs more than a century’s worth of experience in the vineyard with labor-intensive farming techniques that reduce yields, increase quality and ensure wines of outstanding purity and balance. True to the winery’s heritage, Seghesio Family Vineyards is focused mainly on Zinfandel and a handful of Italian varieties. Andy Robinson is the winemaker.

Sonoma County, California

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.

Unapologetically bold, spice-driven and jammy, Zinfandel has secured it’s title as the darling of California vintners by adapting well to the states’ diverse microclimates and landscapes. Born in Croatia, it later made its way to southern Italy where it was named Primitivo. Fortunately, the imperial nursery of Vienna catalogued specimens of the vine, which sourced a journey to New England in 1829. Parading the true American spirit, Zinfandel found a new home in California during the Gold Rush of 1849. Somm Secret—California's ancient vines of Zinfandel are those that survived the neglect of Prohibition; today these vines produce the most concentrated, ethereal and complex examples.
