This blend of Zinfandel (88%), Petite Sirah (8%) and a few minor others is ruby red in colour and full of the spicy, lush black fruit of the Alexander Valley. Wild raspberry and blackberry flavours emerge on the palate along with the structure of the cooler Dry Creek Valley. It is a well-balanced and elegant expression of Zinfandel.
For over a century, the Seghesio family has played an integral role in the evolution of the region's viticulture. The winery was established in 1895, when Italian immigrant Edoardo Seghesio planted his first Zinfandel vines in what is now Seghesio’s ‘Home Ranch’ vineyard in Alexander Valley. Edoardo and his wife Angela continued growing vines during the Prohibition years, and were the only winery in the region to survive that era. Seghesio’s reputation for world class Zinfandel was cemented under the guidance of third generation Pete Seghesio and his cousin Ted Seghesio in the 1980s. Italian consultant winemaker Alberto Antonini's influence can be seen in the juicy, approachable style of Zinfandel that has become Seghesio's hallmark. Seghesio owns 120 hectares of sustainably-farmed vineyards across several renowned appellations in Sonoma, including Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley and Russian River Valley.
