Type: Zinfandel
Principal varietal(s):

Quintessential rich, velvety Zinfandel from super-old vines in Alexander Valley. Perfectly ripe dark berry and dark plum flavors accompanied by a balanced dose of spicy oak and floral notes. Tastes almost sweet because of the ripe fruit despite having no residual sugar. No rough edges anywhere in this beauty, which is already drinking well. I'd be inclined to drink this one young. Only down-side ... all the Seghesio vineyard-designated Zins are now priced well above my pain threshold. - HK 2007-09-20
