Seghesio Zinfandel (Sonoma) 2007wine review by (PB)

Once again at (NW's) he poured this wine he had opened the night before.
It has a black cherry hue with a bouquet of sweet robust spicy pie fruit with a cocoa base.

Palate--Unique front with juicy fruit filled core, chocolate hints, rich berry core that needs a couple more years in bottle but drinking nicely now.

Seghesio tends to score well year after year with thier various lines of Zins. This is the lower tier bottle selling for around $19-$22 typically. This would be a nice Zin to taste next to the Cline table wine Zin that runs most places for about half that. You would see what difference price makes in two wellmade wines but at two different price points. In this case, you get what you pay for although that is not always true when it comes to wine. So raise a glass to well made wines at all levels!

Always a favorite of mine. Everyone I introduce to it has the same comment: "Wow! What an interesting and unusually captivating aroma!"

I've served it before at a dinner party and everyone is always surprised that it is such a good bottle for under $20.

Thanks for the reminder, I'll have to see if I can find a couple of bottles to purchase
