Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2013 Zinfandel Sonoma is an exuberant, richly fruity, medium-bodied effort displaying plenty of raspberry, blueberry and cherry fruit, 14.8% natural alcohol, and a lusty personality. It should drink well for several years. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2014)

Black cherry, blackberry, and blueberry preserve notes mingle with suggestions of cumin and black pepper on the nose. The palate re-states that, with the addition of nectarine and sandalwood to the list. Darkly juicy, but not over-ripe, with understated oak, wispy tannins, and enough acidity to tie it all together without making you notice it. Fans take note: this is a great Zinfandel for the money, giving you just enough of the hedonic quality the variety is known for without going overboard.

One of California's great Zinfandel producers, the Seghesio Family have been at the forefront of Zinfandel production. There Sonoma County Zinfandel is one of the great values in California Zin. Consistency and quality are second to none.

Back in 2011 there was quite a scare in the world of Zinfandel. That was the year that the Seghesio Family sold their winery to a large company named Crimson Wine Group. This was a bit unsettling at the time being that the Seghesio Family was second only to the Foppianos for the crown as the longest running winemaking family in Sonoma County. We were all a little depressed by it for a while but then nothing really changed. The family still held control of the old vine plots like Cortina and Home Ranch, Pete stayed on as CEO and Ted as winemaker. The quality and branding was the same as it ever was and quite honestly I think most people even forgot that the Winery changed hands. This was great news to all Zin fans, especially when they kept churning out tremendous, affordable Zin like the 2013 Sonoma County. Just released this is a great wine for $20 with all of is warm spice cake, berry cobbler, whole peppercorn and sweet tea aromatics. Big and burly but with wild acidity acting as a counter weight this has a little something for everyone in the Zin world with its briary richness of fruit, bushels of pepper, fresh berry notes and a sweet oak lacing which ties up the substantial finish. I guess change, or the lack thereof, isn’t always a bad thing!
