Seghesio Family Vineyards Zinfandel Alexander Valley Home Ranch 2009
In 1893, newlyweds Edoardo and Angela Seghesio purchased their first home in Alexander Valley. As winemaker for the most prominent winery in Sonoma County, Edoardo recognized great vineyard potential surrounding the modest home. In 1895, he planted the “Home Ranch” vineyard and began our family‟s lineage of Sharing Uncommon Ground.
excellent, nice fruit. all around wonderfully delicious
Good for the price point but no qualities standout.
The 2009 vintage doesn't match up well with 2008. This wine is too acidic and thus the tannins are not as balanced. The fruit aroma and flavor are reminiscent of the 2008 vintage, but pale in comparison. I'm not convinced that aging will bring this wine up to the 2008 quality. Disappointing, but I'll be cracking open a bottle of their Ranch Zinfandel soon, and I expect a much better experience.
Just had this wine at a tasting and it was flying out of the store. Much better than the 08 and seemed smoother than the 07 in a head-to-head today. Round with no harsh notes.
Excellent Fruity bold but not too hot and overpowering

Bold aromas of briary wild berry and cracked pepper lead to plush and layered black raspberry, toasty sage and espresso flavors that finish with zesty tannins. Drink now through 2016. 69,000 cases made. -TF ** SOLD OUT **
Big and jammy, with white pepper and bright cherry aromas that lead to soft flavors of berry pie, vanilla and roasted underbrush. Tannins sneak in on the finish. Drink now through 2017. 2,500 cases made. -TF ** Only 10 in Stock **
The classic and youthful zinfandel nose of brambly berry is turned up a notch with an exotic twist of fresh guava meets olallaberry pie. Medium to full bodied on the palate, it displays excellent acid-to-fruit balance. There's plenty of blackberry fr... Neil Mechanic.

Seghesio Old Vine Zinfandel blends the finest lots from vineyards planted between 1920-1950 on the benchlands of Dry Creek and western Alexander Valleys. Although "Old Vine" is often loosely interpreted in the wine industry, the benchmark here is fifty years. True "Old Vine" Zin is distinguished by dry-farmed, thick, gnarled trunks and planted with historic clones dating back to the years before Prohibition. In each of these old blocks, vines of Carignane and/or Petite Sirah are inter-planted, as was typical of the era. The small concentrated berries these old vines produce are fermented in small open-top barrels and then aged in primarily French oak barrels for 15 months. This 2009 is an Editors Choice with a 94 point score in Wine Enthusiast Magazine who said "As chewy and umami, salty delicious as a mouthful of crunchy bacon. Throw in dried blackberries and blueberries, with a touch of smoky new oak, and that describes this fantastically pure, addictively good Zinfandel. The grape sourcing is from old vineyards in the Alexander and Dry Creek Valleys. Truly a great Zin" Limited!
Layered bright fruit flavors reminiscent of a rich berry pie with a toasted crust. Old vine Zinfandel s complex spice undertones. Low yields in the vineyard preserved the vibrant natural acidity and balanced tannins. Long, persistent finish.
Subtle hints of oak, briary acidity and the soft, ripe fruit tannins that will come to embody the 2009 vintage. Could it be that we've finally found a way to bottle Ed Seghesio s famed marionberry and vanilla ice cream dessert?!
