If you like Zinfandels this is the best one from a company that specializes in zinfandels. I just went to their wine tasting where the CEO presented five of his zinfandels to us and this was my favorite.

Edoardo Seghesio immigrated to America in 1886 from the Piedmonte region of Italy, home to Barbera. In California, while Barbera has been grown for over a century, it has only recently enjoyed a resurgence in popularity. Barbera is ideally suited to California's growing conditions. The heat and lack of rain provide intense flavors and extended hang time for Barbera's classic acidity to achieve balance.

Bright, full ruby. Superripe aromas of black cherry, blueberry and bitter chocolate. Rich, deep and rather powerful (14.5% alcohol), with superb sweetness to its strong fruit. A major mouthful of sweet, ripe barbera but with enough acidity to give life to its lush texture.

Winemaker's Notes:

Edoardo Seghesio first worked with Sangiovese in the late 1800s during his time as winemaker at an Italian Swiss colony. His Sangiovese plantings on the Home Ranch vineyard are the oldest in America, dating back to 1910. They are also the source of four unique clones for Seghesio’s subsequent plantings of the varietal. Although Sangiovese typically grows vigorously, the low yielding, shallow soils of the Home Ranch Vineyard, combined with the small berries of the four clones used, result in wines of intense varietal character. This Barbera has aromas and flavours of dark fruit, including black cherry, raspberry and black plum There are notes of lavender, sage and anise, with a mid-palate rush of fruit and spice. For a Barbera this vintage has a velvety richness, while the acidity and Tannins complement and add fullness. The French Oak seasoning provides vanilla, clove and cinnamon essences.
