Very rich ruby color. Quite fruity on the tongue/palate—lots of blackberry and prune. It comes close to being a “jammy” Zin, but, thankfully, stops just short of that. Serious tartness (think sour peach) emerges at the back of the palate. A very lengthy finish. A good, sturdy, wine, but not one that I would lust for more.

The definition of balance. less spice than most zins I've had recently, but just enough of everything to feature the rich fruit. not overpowering, but full. just right. edit: the one I reviewed is "Sonoma County". Not sure if this is the same one, but it was the only 08 on here....

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Tasting Notes:

* Lush boysenberries and blackberries flood the senses – mouthwatering! * Briary underbrush spiciness with subtle hints of black pepper * Home Ranch site-specific “graham crust’ nuance * Old Vine’s prominent acid presence contributes focus * Warm climate exposure to the elements provides for well integrated tannin ripeness * Vineyard Designate that consistently produces finely crafted Zinfandel
