Outer quote mark Plump and briary, this is a zesty update on old-school Zin, offering wild berry, underbrush and licorice flavors that build richness and structure on the lively finish. Drink now through 2028. (TF) Inner quote mark (11/2021)

Outer quote mark The appellation 2019 Zinfandel Sonoma is a charming, fruit-forward effort with plenty of blueberry and cherry-like fruit as well as classic spice box and peppery herbs. Medium-bodied and nicely textured, with chewy tannins, it doesn't quite have the texture of the others, but it’s nevertheless incredibly charming and satisfying. Inner quote mark (7/2021)

K&L Notes

**Wine Spectator's #5 Top Value Wine of 2021** "The history of Seghesio dates back more than a century. The winery planted its first vineyard in Sonoma County in 1895 and endured both Prohibition and the Great Depression, staking its reputation on good value reds. The brand went upscale in the mid-1990s, transforming itself from a jug-wine factory into an elite Zinfandel specialist. The Seghesio family sold the winery in 2011, yet the quality remains stellar. This bottling is not only a bargain, but also a tribute to old-school, Zin-based field blends, with winemaker Andy Robinson culling from vineyards in Sonoma, Russian River, Alexander Valley and Dry Creek Valley, including juice that didn’t make it into single-vineyard wines like Home Ranch and Montafi. About 12% of the blend is Petite Sirah, Alicante Bouschet and other reds. Robinson aged the wine for 10 months in a mix of mostly neutral American and French oak."

Is there a better value Zin out there that delivers as consistently as this bottling from Seghesio? I don't know of one. I distinctly remember when I had just taken over as the Domestic Wine Buyer for K&L, I asked one of our owners for some advice on how much Seghesio Zin to buy for an upcoming email offer...28cs? 56cs? He replied with "a few hundred cases, we sell this wine by the pallet every year." It was at that point I realized just what a powerhouse wine this is in the category. Sourced from great vineyards all across key sub-regions of Sonoma County, Seghesio use their long history and wealth experience to make sure this wine over-delivers each and every year. It's a benchmark wine for variety and region. The 2019 edition is right on the money with rich brambly fruit, blackberry, raspberry compote, chaparral notes, rubbing spices, dried herbs. It's ripe and fruit-forward with a lush but vibrant texture on the palate. Juicy and rich, but never jammy. As with most classic California Zins it also contains smaller amounts of Petite Sirah, Carignane, Alicante Bouchet, and others that add another layer of complexity. The sources for this wine include famed vineyards such as Montafi and Home Ranch. Lots of the fruit is from old vines across Dry Creek, Alexander and Russian River Valleys. All in all there's a ton of great wine in the bottle for a very reasonable price. It's no surprise at all to me that this wine was named Wine Spectator's #5 Best Value Wine of 2021.
Top Value!
