To celebrate my 2000th post on Instagram here is a nicely aged Zinfandel from Sonoma.

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

Very soft nose of blueberries, sweet strawberries, cherries, vanilla, oak, vinaigrette, spices, chocolates and black pepper.

Medium plus in body and elegant, with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blueberries, black plums, red currants, wood, sweet raspberries, earth, light vegetables, leather, pencil lead, orange peel, spices and peppercorn.

Medium plus on the finish with very soft tannins and tangy cranberries.

This Is a very nice Zinfandel from Sonoma County. Showing nice complexity with an elegant mouthfeel.

This 9 year old is drinking completely differently than the three-year-old that I had not too long ago.
More red fruits than black fruits, with some earth notes, vinaigrette and vegetables which were not there when fresh.

Not as tasty until fully open (90 minutes), so be patient and you will not regret it.

Good by itself as a sipping wine or with food. I paired it with T-bone steak and baked potatoes.

14.8% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$25.

Pizza wine Christmas Eve. Lost in the cellar gift... Did not mean for this to go 14 years. Surprisingly good. A potpourri of berries starting to rot.

Deep purple in color with a wide purplish rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, sweet cherries, black currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, dark chocolates, coffee, peppercorn and pencil lead.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and extremely fruity on the palate with sweet cherries, plums, black currants, coffee, oak, cloves, light alcohol, earth, spices, peppercorn, tobacco and herbs.

Medium plus on the finish with soft tannins and tangy cranberries.

This Sonoma Zinfandel is always enjoyable. Drinking nicely now and will be better in the next few years.

Spicy and bold with mild complexity. Still very fruity, and needs a few years in the bottle to chill out.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up.

14.8% alcohol by volume.

Sensible everyday drinking Zinfandel. Paired well with a supreme pizza. Much better wines offered by this winery. Not bad for an entry level wine.

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.
