Seghesio Home Ranch Zinfandel California-Napa Valley. United States 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Home Ranch is one of our earliest-ripening lots and also one of our best. Consistently, Home Ranch's shallow, non-fertile soils produce smaller-berried fruit packed with luscious, ripe blackberry/boysenberry flavor tones. Home Ranch's precision crafted varietal expression, Zin's acid presence and, of course, Old Vine's deeply rooted spicy/briery richness is impressionable. An exceptional effort from a special place! Salute!

  The Seghesio Family Vineyards have a rich history, dating back to 1895 when Edoardo Seghesio and his wife Angela purchased their home in Alexander Valley, part of Sonoma County. They didn’t buy the land for the house - they bought it for the 56 acres that were ideal vineyard land. That year, the land’s first grapes were planted - Zinfandel. In 1902, Seghesio Winery was founded, but the Seghesios didn’t stop there. In 1910 they acquired even more land, in the region known as Chianti, California. On that land, they planed Sangiovese, Canielao Nero, Trebbiano and Malvasia, making the it the oldest planting of Sangiovese in North America. Six months before Prohibition, Seghesio took a gamble and made a significant purchase - a 4,000,000 gallon capacity winery with 1,100 acres of vineyards from his former employer, Italian Swiss Colony. Unfortunately, Prohibition hit harder than Seghesio expected, and he was forced to completely sell off his shares in the winery by 1933. In 1983, the company changed drastically, when Ted and Peter Seghesio decided to shift the winery’s focus to high-quality production and much smaller lots, producing wine under the Seghesio label for the first time. Ted became the both the winemaker and the deliverer of wine, and with the help of Peter, a successful distribution network was formed. After tending to over 400 acres of vineyards across many regions, Seghesio Family Vineyards has become a large, successful vineyard with fourth generation winemakers. Read less

This is my favorite Home Ranch Zinfandel yet, and that is saying something since it is, year in and year out, my favorite of the Seghesio Zins. Silky and refined yet powerful and classically structured, this wine is already sensational. Deep, ripe, spicy, lip-smacking berry, cassis, and plum fruit flavors cascade over the taste buds seamlessly from start to finish, and there's even a subtle lead-pencil component there for added complexity. Magnificent Zinfandel.
