"A Zinfandel that has it all—rich, ripe flavors, good structure and acidity, and lots of personality. Offers aromas of cherry pie and licorice that lead to complex flavors of huckleberry, toasty vanilla and smoky cracked pepper. Drink now through 2017." (WS)

Winery Notes:
In 1893, newlyweds Edoardo and Angela Seghesio purchased their first home in Alexander Valley. As winemaker for the most prominent winery in Sonoma County, Edoardo recognized great vineyard potential surrounding the modest home. In 1895, he planted the “Home Ranch” vineyard and began our family’s lineage of Sharing Uncommon Ground.

“Best Vintage to Date!” is the quote from a winemaker who seldom speaks in superlatives. With a drought in the beginning of the season, an abundant crop was set in a tight window yet, only half of the crop made it to maturity. A dry, moderate growing season punctuated by a heat wave in August provided intensely flavored fruit.
