2009 ZINFANDEL, Seghesio. Sonoma, California (Half Bottle)

Bin:  899

Alcohol percentage:  15.5%

Area:

Seghesio are based in Healdsburg, Sonoma Valley. Their Zinfandel comes from Home Ranch, River Road, Lone Oak and San Lorenzo in Alexander Valley; Cortina in Dry Creek Valley

Grape variety:

Zinfandel aged 10 months in oak (75% American oak; 25% French)

Producer:

For decades the Seghesio family, like many Italian immigrants, simply grew grapes for sale to other wineries. The switch to winemaking has been a huge success. They specialize in Zinfandel and a host of rarely seen Italian varieties. Zinfandel grows like a weed in warm climates, so aggressive ‘canopy management’ is required to tame it. Their grape-growing expertise is perhaps the secret to Seghesio’s succes.

Food match:

Good Zin is ripe and juicy but with enlivening, zesty freshness on the finish. Hence it can be great food wine – barbecued meats, obviously, but it’s also one of the few reds to work with strong cheese. (The alcohol is very high but there’s enough ‘zip’ to balance it. Zin does need to reach high alcohol levels in order to be fully ripe).
