2018 Seghesio Family Vineyards Paso Robles Zinfandel
As we strive to always produce the very best Zinfandel we can, we began to explore other regions and vineyards outside of Sonoma County that would allow us to capture different expressions of Zinfandel and showcase the diversity and range of styles for this variety. Our exploits led us to some very unique vineyards in Paso Robles that, like Sonoma County, has a rich history of wine growing that has largely been shaped by the success of Zinfandel, planted there as early as the 1880’s. Paso Robles features a generally warmer and drier climate than Sonoma County with different soil compositions and some stunning old vines sites.
Bramble and spice on the nose accented by the aroma of fresh fennel with notes of strawberry preserves and fresh cracked black pepper. On the palate the wine is bright and mouthwatering with fresh acidity and notes of raspberry and black currant. Supple tannins lead to a long finish that lingers.
