Type: Zinfandel
Principal varietal(s): Zin

A rich and savory single-vineyard Zinfandel that I found a little less compelling than the Mazzocco Reserve West Dry Creek Zin tasted recently. Still, the Seaton is full of dark berry and super-ripe plum flavors along with a cassis-like liqueur note and an attractive spicy edge. Very soft and open-knit in the mouth, with a bit of heat from the elevated alcohol. We purchased this at a winery sale for about half the $52 list price, which was a super buy for the quality level. A bit pricy at $52 retail, though. - HK 2016-05-03
