2006 Seghesio Marian's Reserve
Alexander Valley, Sonoma, California
WB Rating: 91

Alcohol by volume: 15.8%
Price at time of purchase: $42.00 (winery)
Type: Zin blend
Principal varietal(s): 34% Zinfandel, 33% Petite Sirah, 33% Carignane

Big, brawny, satisfying field blend that's roughly equal parts Zin, Petite Sirah, and Carignane. Claret-like flavor profile, with lots of deep, dark, smoky berry and prune fruit with a touch of espresso, very rich but with no feel of over-ripeness. Big and chewy texture in the mouth, but really nicely balanced among the fruit, acid, tannin components for a wine of this size. Outstanding wine, but not to be served with wimpy foods. - HK 2012-10-13
