"Plump and loaded with rich, jammy fruit, this Zinfandel is a pleasure to drink. Bold accents of wild berry, spicy cinnamon and licorice glide dynamically toward plush tannins. Drink now through 2025. -T.F." (WS)

"5. 2016 Seghesio, Sonoma County ($26) – Medium-dark ruby; attractive, forward, ripe, spicy, raspberry, blueberry, and blackberry fruit aroma with hints of dill, licorice, and baking spices; full body; rich, ripe, plummy, red and black fruit flavors with peppery notes, good acid balance, and some suppleness in the mouthfeel; medium-full tannin; lingering aftertaste.

Winery Notes:
This wine presents a bold nose that teems with aromas of blueberry, nutmeg and baked strawberry, intertwined with hints of brambly spice and lush black fruit typical of Alexander Valley. The palate leads smoothly with flavors of briery, black cherry, cocoa and coffee, while the finish is balanced and elegantly structured.
