2018 Seghesio Family Vineyards Marian's Reserve
In 1975, Ed Seghesio co-fermented an equal blend of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, and Carignane for his own consumption. When the Seghesio family released the first wines under their name in 1983, Ed’s blend was bottled and released in honor of his beloved wife, Fay Marian. To showcase the varietal characteristics of these remarkable old vines while honoring Fay's legacy, Seghesio began producing Marian’s Reserve again in 2004.
This unique blend opens with notes of black cherry, plum, and cigar box. On the palate, the wine has plenty of structure with polished tannins and lush notes of blue fruit, spice, and a fresh finish.
