Top Notch! Full of blackberry and spice with a touch of earth and tar. Usually the best zin the Seghesio makes. Very full-bodied. Read more

A little softer and more approachable (to me) than the Cortina Zin. Had softer red fruit aromas. Still pretty big with more dark red fruit (cherry) flavors and finished in spice. Still a lot of heat 15%+ alcohol.

Probably at the top of it's game right now. Jammy and rich for a Seghesio with a great mouth feel and nice spice. Needs a good Bleu Cheese to compliment it. Drink now.

Huge and extracted, this is the biggest Cortina that I have ever tasted. It is full of fruit and very dark spice (clove, cinnamon, etc.). Allow at least 2 hours to breathe.

At $12.95, this is an incredible value and wine! Elegant, smooth, fruity with just a hint of oak enhances a great nose coupled with nice tannins and finish. Great choice for those who like a Merlot and a robust Zinafandel. Do allow it to breathe. Grab it at this price and relish the experience!

Winemaker's Notes:

Edoardo Seghesio emigrated to America in 1886 from Piemonte in Italy. Since the early 1900s, the family purchased fruit from growers in Dry Creek Valley, and, recognizing the area’s great potential for Zinfandel, in 1957 they acquired 56 acres in the heart of the Valley. It is the dominant soil type of their vineyard, a gravelly loam, that contributes to Dry Creek Valley’s current reputation as one of the finest places in the world to grow Zinfandel. Cortina exemplifies a special place with briery, spicy white pepper typicity and minerally, loamy soil undertones. Deeply hued and elegantly concentrated with fine dusty tannins. Flavors of black raspberries and ripe black currants with toasty sweet new oak integration. Bright acidity lays the foundation for the wine’s richness and structure. Good tannin structure is elegantly balanced by ripeness and high acidity.
