Packed with fruit but also acidity and tannins to balance it. Perfect with a grilled ribeye and a mushroom/wine reduction sauce. A California classic zin.

Might be the first Zinfandel I didn't dislike and it is definitely the first that smelled like peach yogurt to me.

Seghesio us probably my favorite zinfandel producer but this is their bare bones basic version. Still loaded with sour cherry and raspberry notes and extremely drinkable, but their Cortina vineyard, Rockpile and Home Ranch provide better expressions for just a little more.

Much better the second night. First night, it came across very much like a simple zin fruit bomb. Second night, it evened out a bit. Midpalate is a touch hollow. I'm sorry, Mendo producers like Graziano, Steele, and others truly do the best Zin in California. This is a nice wine, but I just haven't found a single producer outside of Mendocino that can stack up quality and price wise to the mendo crew. pH is just a bit too high. It muddies the palate towards that nearly overly fruit forward posture. Closed aromatics, unfortunately. I enjoy the wine, just the slightest bit lacking for the 25 dollars.
