From: California; Sonoma County

Grapes: Zinfandel

Cost: $36

Alcohol: 15.4%

Taste: Really delicious. Ripe Blackberry quickly fades into spice, espresso and eventually dill and tart blackberry. It’s leathery, clove, cinnamon, vanilla, cigar

Other Stuff:  It smells like a walk on a dry grassy sage-filled California trail. Dusty, Berry, A little charred wood, white sage.

I really, really like this. It’s a transformer. So many, many, many differently phases and experiences on each sip. WOW.

Now I’m really wanting to try the higher end Seghesio models.

I can’t believe how perfect this wine paired with this evening, the weather, the food and my mood. First wine I’ve tasted that transported me to another place. I’m hiking the trail among the wild flowers and regrowth in the burn area behind my In-laws Southern CA home.
