Tasting Notes For Seghesio Sonoma Zinfandel 2017
Every vintage, we harvest multiple diverse lots of Zinfandel that span the entire Sonoma County Zinfandel landscape. Each of these lots is produced under the careful eyes of winemaker Andy Robinson. The best of these lots are selected to make Sonoma Zinfandel. A small amount of Petite Sirah is added to honor century old traditions and to provide color and structure. The result is a wine that offers tantalizing raspberry, blueberry, classic briary and spicy flavors with a balance of components for which Seghesio wines are known.
The 2017 winter saw roughly double the average rainfall totals, ending a five-year extended drought condition in the region. This led to abundant vegetative growth in the spring as soils were saturated well through bloom. Extreme heat beginning in April provided hints at what would become another record-breaking year of temperatures throughout the growing season. Harvest kicked off August 31 with ten consecutive days over 100°F. This was followed by a significant cooling trend which allowed for added hang time, leading to increased flavor development.
Aromas of wild blueberry, briary raspberry patch and baking spice give way to a palate of juicy, ripe blackberry and black plum. Soft tannins, a rich mouthfeel and focused acidity lead to a long finish, creating a delightful wine to pair with red sauces, pizza, and barbeque, as well as sopressata and dry jack.
