Reviews and Ratings

Andrea Shapiro - Andrea's Wine Cellar rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Deep ruby-purple. An ideal blend of those two colours. On the nose, stewed fruit, dark-skinned plum, black cherry, grilled red pepper, toast and coffee. Very jammy and plummy. Flavours reflect and echo the bouquet with the additions of some red fruit chutney, rich candied apple and cherry pie filling notes. Medium plus acidity, full body and long finish. Subtle, yet rich tannins. Some sweetness at the end. Fruity, juicy and full. A perfect pairing with barbecued pork ribs, beef tenderloin and aged cheeses.
Melanie Lloyd rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

This Zinfandel has aromas of strawberries, red licorice, vanilla, sweet spice and a touch of pepper. It has flavours of strawberries and raspberries and has fresh acidity on the palate. Would pair nicely with barbecued ribs.

Tasted October 2017
From Sonoma County, Seghesio Zinfandel is one of California's best Zins. Produced since 1895, this Zinfandel has a long history. Grapes were sourced from vineyards in Alexander Valley and Dry Creek in Sonoma. On the palate there is lots of small and ripe black and red berries with dried herbs and peppery anise spice on the palate. Drink now and for the next five years. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
