2009 Seghesio Marian's Reserve
Alexander Valley, Sonoma, California
 
WB Rating: 87

 
Alcohol by volume: 14.8%
Price at time of purchase: $42.00 (winery)
 
Type: Zin blend
Principal varietal(s): 34% Zinfandel, 33% Petite Sirah, 33% Carignane

Big, heavy, somewhat rustic red with nice density of dark berry and cherry fruit. Very earthy. Tannic mouthfeel and finish but mouth-filling and rich. I would have identified this as a heavy-duty Carignane; the fruit and life that I find in the Seghesio Zins seems pretty submerged here. For the price I much prefer the Seghesio Zinfandel lineup. - HK 2013-12-12
