2016 Seghesio "Cortina" Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel

SKU #1484787 93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Sage, earth and dried herbs on the nose; then rich flavours of raspberries, cherries and blueberries. A core of acid and smooth tannins make this fun now and for several years to come. A wine that defines Dry Creek Zin. Inner quote mark (1/2020)

93 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2016 Zinfandel Cortina offers more complexity in its earth dark fruits, underbrush, Caramelized cherries, and spice. Rich, medium to full-bodied, with ripe tannins and a solid sense of purity and freshness, this is a classy yet pleasure bent Zinfandel that will keep for a decade. Inner quote mark (6/2019)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This 100% varietal wine is juicy in flavors of blackberry and cherry, with an expansive nature to the well-integrated midpalate. It offers a bold depth of fruit and spice flavors that sit well in the full-bodied frame. (VB) Inner quote mark (5/2019)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Zinfandel Cortina is medium ruby in color and youthfully coiled on the nose, taking its time to release scents of sliced nectarine, rhubarb, boysenberry and blueberry accented by dried flowers, warm earth, garrigue and loads of spiciness. The palate is still tight and reticent to show its juicy fruits. It has a soft texture and very pleasing, juicy acidity, finishing long. I suspect this will reward another couple of years in bottle.

92 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Andy Robinson makes this wine from a vineyard planted in 1972, where the gravelly soils and morning fog produce a clean and elegant zin. It’s a wine with sage-like spice lifting the deeper flavors of red and purple berries. Bright and brash, gentle and harmonious, this feels integrated and lasting. (JG) Inner quote mark (6/2019)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Brooding and appealingly briary, with dark cherry, fresh sage and smoked pepper flavors that persist toward broad-shouldered tannins. (TF) Inner quote mark (6/2019)
