Principal varietal(s):

Another beautifully rendered Home Ranch Zinfandel from Seghesio. This wine somehow always seems to capture everything I love about Zin, with deep, spicy berry flavors and mouth-filling richness, but with nothing overdone: no pruney over-ripeness and plenty of fruit and power to suppress any alcoholic heat. Full but elegant and harmonious structure overall. Admirable depth and density without a shred of heaviness. I'm glad I stocked up on the 2009 vintage. The 2011 version is listed at $58 on the Seghesio website. Ouch. - HK 2013-07-30
