Paired this wine with a 10oz New York Steak and a Caesar salad. I've been reading all this time about how the right pairing is a magical experience. The waitress seemed skeptical about our choice, but our simultaneous "wow!" confirmed that it was a perfect match. The wine was Jammy, and fruit filled as expected, but this wine complimented the meal with tastes of charred meat, sage and black pepper. Delicious!

A Zinfandel wine from California in USA. 2010 Seghesio Zinfandel Cortina 750ml
If you're looking for a great California Zinfandel look no further than Seghesio. Though you can find a few different labels for their Zins (Sonoma, Cortina, Old Vine) the one thing you know you're getting is quality.
Flavors of dark ripe cherries and sweet raspberries followed by velvety mouthfeel.A blend from sites in Dry Creek Valley and Alexander Valley.
Raspberry, black currant and subtle pomegranate flavors with white chocolate undertones distinguished varietal appeal. Aromas of black raspberry and mineral with a hint of violet. Ripe acidity, integrated tannins and structured to last.
Finding nice equilibrium between ripeness and fruit, Seghesio has come up with a balanced and wonderfully accessible wine that is rife with juicy blackberry qualities and throws in a touch of sweet oak. If not yet as polished nor as complex as it wil... Connoisseurs Guide. A Zinfandel wine from California in USA. 2010 Seghesio Zinfandel Sonoma 750ml
Seghesio Family Vineyards' roots are firmly planted in Zinfandel, as our founder, Edoardo Seghesio, first planted this historic varietal on our Alexander Valley Home Ranch in 1895. Today, we share his passion as we farm over 300 acres of estate Zinfandel in Alexander and Dry Creek valleys. This wine combines sites that have produced Zinfandel for over a century with newer sites that utilize proprietary clones and the most advanced viticultural practices.Winemaker Notes: Spicy, lush black fruit of Alexander Valley Briary and raspberry flavors, along with structure, of cooler Dry Creek Valley Characteristic synergy of components - balanced and elegantly structuredFood AffinitiesRed sauces, pizza, barbecue, spicy cuisine and a variety of meatsBarrel RegimeAged 10 months in 75% American (10% new) and 25% French oak (neutral) Alcohol -14.8% ** SOLD OUT **
You could use this as a teaching tool for classic Sonoma County Zinfandel. It’s full-bodied, dry and spicy, with briary flavors of wild berries, mocha, tobacco, leather and exotic spices. More importantly, it’s absolutely delicious. The grapes come from Seghesio’s best vineyards in the Alexander and Dry Creek valleys. At this price, it’s an astonishing value, especially considering that production was nearly 80,000 cases.
